INSTRUCTIONS

STITCHES USED: Stockinette stitch (St st)

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, 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.

Repeat Rows 1 – 6 for Lace Rib.
