How to knit a lace pattern

In this DROPS video we show you how to knit a lace pattern. We cast on 26 stitches and knit the chart with 2 edge stitch in each side (22+4).

Chart description:
Empty square = knit from right side, purl from wrong side
Black dot = purl from right side, knit from wrong side
The triangle pointing to the left = knit 2 stitches together
The triangle pointing to the right = slip 1 stitch, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over
The triangle pointing up = slip 1 stitch, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over
Empty circle = between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over

In the video we use the yarn DROPS Eskimo.

Your patterns are beautiful, and the videos are very well presented, instructive,and easily understood. A great asset for knitters.

Hello, My question is, when working a chart as in pattern 137-4, chart M.2, I would like some help. I'm new to lace knitting. Does the number of stitches change in the rep eat, or do they remain the same, and the stitches only increase on the panels before and after the repeat. That is my way thinking. Thank you so much for your help.

Dear Mrs Murphy, the number of sts in M.2 will inc by 2 sts on every other row (= every row from RS). You can add a marker between each repeat to make sure you can follow number of sts as in diagram. Happy knitting!

Love the clarity of the videos, seeing how the yarns are worked up, such as the Alpaca, Silk, and the Eskimo was very helpful, Thank You.
