This Zig Zag Lace Stitch Pattern is knitted over a multiple of 10 stitches plus 1 in 8 row repeats. I use this one quite often for my baby knitting.  It works really well for matinee jackets like the one in the photo below.

This is a relatively easy lace stitch pattern.  Although is is a 8 row pattern, every second row is purl so there are really only 4 pattern rows. And as you can see it is a very pretty lace pattern.
