INSTRUCTIONS

SPECIAL TECHNIQUE

I-Cord:Using a double pointed needle, cast on 4 sts; DO NOT TURN.  * Slide sts to the opposite end of the needle and knit them, pulling yarn firmly behind sts; repeat from * to desired length.  After a few rows, you will see that you are knitting a tiny tube; give it a gentle tug now and then to adjust any loose sts.  Bind off all sts, leaving a 12" tail for finishing.

 

STITCHES USED

Stockinette stitch (St st)

Lacy Rib (multiple of 4 sts + 3)

Note: The yarn-overs in this Stitch pattern provide the extra yarn needed to produce the 'eyelets' on each side of the slipped st, and to allow the slipped st to become elongated as it is slipped; they are not worked as sts. On Rows 3 and 6 the yarn-over strands are incorporated into the slipped st as it is worked.

Row 1 (RS): K3, * yo, slip 1, yo, k3; repeat from * across.

Row 2: P3, * yo, slip [first yo and next st, drop remaining yo], yo, p3; repeat from * across.

Row 3: K3, knit slipped st, inserting needle under both yarn-over strands and into st, k3; repeat from * across.

Row 4: P3, * yo, slip1, yo, p3; repeat from * across.

Row 5: K3, yo, slip [first yo and next st, drop remaining yo], yo, k3; repeat from * across.

Row 6: P3, purl slipped st, inserting needle under both yarn-over strands and into st, p3; repeat from * across.

Repeat Rows 1 – 6 for Lace Rib.

Lace Stitch (multiple of 2 sts + 1)

Note: This Stitch pattern is worked in the same way as Lacy Rib, with fewer sts between the slipped sts. The RS of the fabric is the reverse of Lacy Rib, to produce all-over lace, rather than a Rib.

Row 1 (WS): K1, * yo, slip 1, yo, k1; repeat from * across.

Row 2: P1, * yo, slip [first yo and next st, drop remaining yo], yo, p1; repeat from * across.

Row 3: K1, knit slipped st, inserting needle under both yarn-over strands and into st, k1; repeat from * across.

Row 4: P1, * yo, slip1, yo, p1; repeat from * across.

Row 5: K1, yo, slip [first yo and next st, drop remaining yo], yo, k1; repeat from * across.

Row 6: P1, purl slipped st, inserting needle under both yarn-over strands and into st, p1; repeat from * across.

Repeat Rows 1 – 6 for Lace st.
