Lace Knitting Stitch Patterns are another option if you want to customise a basic pattern to create a unique garment of your own design.

Although usually considered a more advanced knitting technique, many of the lacy knitting stitches (rather than true lace) are relatively simple and can be attempted by those of you who have at least some knitting experience.

Lace Knitting Stitch Pattern Instructions

Diamond Lace Panel

The Diamond Lace Panel can be used as an all over lace pattern or as a feature panel on your garment. It is knitted over eleven stitches and eight rows.

1st row (right side) : P2, *k2tog, [k1, yf] twice, k1, sl 1, k1, psso, p2; repeat from * to end of row.
2nd and every alt row: K2, *p7, k2; repeat to end of row.
3rd row: P2, *k2tog, yf, k3, yf, sl 1, k1, psso, p2; repeat to end of row.
5th row: P2, *k1, yf, sl 1, k1, psso, k1, k2tog, yf, k1, p2; repeat to end of row.
7th row: P2, *k2, yf, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yf, k2, p2; repeat to end of row.
8th row: As 2nd row.

Repeat these eight rows.

To make the Diamond Lace Panel an all over lace pattern, repeat the pattern as given above over a multiple of nine stitches plus 2. As a variation to an all over lace pattern, you can insert a panel of stocking stitch between each pattern as I have in my sample.

Faggoted Lace Panel

The Faggoted Lace Panel is typically knitted over nine stitches and four rows on a stocking stitch background.

1st row (right side) :P1, k1, k2tog, yf, k1, yf, k2tog tbl, k1, p1.
2nd row: K1, p7, k1.
3rd row: P1, k2tog, yf, k3, yf, k2tog tbl, p1.
4th row: As 2nd row.

Repeat these four rows.
