Day 21 : Cascading Leaves Lace Knit Stitch : #21daysoflaceknitstitches

Swatch of Cascading Leaves Lace Knit Stitch
Welcome to Day 21 of the 21 Days of Lace Knit Stitches Series! It’s the last day of the series. Learn this lace knit stitch in the video tutorial below. Another day of basic lace stitches used in a different combination to create a beautiful pattern!
I’m in awe of the simplicity and complexity of knitting. There aren’t any new stitches today. I chose this stitch for the last day because of the unique combination of stitches. The cascading leaves look like cables and lace, but without actually knitting cable stitches. I hope you enjoy today’s stitch as much as I did!
