Lacy Knit Stitches image
Special thanks to our viewer Nina who submitted part of a pattern she needed help with! This simple tutorial uses a two row repeating pattern that involves knit, purl, yarn over, purl 2 together, and edge stitches. It is demonstrated using the Continental Method of knitting.

Nina wrote us and shared a few lines of a pattern that she is having trouble with.

The knitting pattern reads as follows:

First row: 1 edge stitch, *p1,k2,1yo,sl1,k1,psso),p1* end with edge stitch.
Second row: 1 edge stitch, *k1,p2,1yo,p2tog,k1* end with edge stitch.

Video Tutorials Of This Pattern

Here is an example of this pattern being knitted. Since Nina knits using the continental method, I am doing this video using that method. Also, I used size 8 (US) needles (here is a conversion chart if you do not use US sized knitting needles) and worsted weight yarn.

Example For Left Handed Knitters

In my video example, I demonstrate the pattern as it is shown here without being repeated on the same row. If you did repeat the pattern, it would look like this:

To make this pattern into a scarf, loosely cast on 26 stitches. Repeat the areas between the asterisks four times, repeating both rows until the scarf is the desired length. Bind off.
