New Knit Stitch a Week: Lace Insert

Lace Insert

Teaching myself one new knit stitch a week, from the Complete Guide to Needlework book, c. 1979.

I kind of hit a busy spell - one week with a lot of parties and other projects, so I had to skip, but here we go with this week's. I like how this breaks up the fluffy routine of garter stitch with some nice, open pauses.

I cast on 12 stitches on size 9 needles (I forgot my trusty size 8's) - left is a thick, acrylic yarn I lost the tag to, right is Caron Simply Soft

Rows 1 to 6: knit
Rows 7 and 9: *yo, K 2 tog*
Rows 8 and 10: *yo, P 2 tog*
