Retro Crafting Friday: Tulip Lace Knitting Stitch

This stitch makes me think of spring. It is from my vintage Harmony Guide to Knitting. The Harmony Guides are always my favorite stitch encyclopedias, though there is no good index. Librarians hate that!

Here’s the stitch pattern:

Multiple of 8+7

1st row (right side) Knit.

2nd and every alt row: Purl

3rd row: K3, *yf, sl 1 k1, psso, k6; rep from * to last 4 sts, yf, sl 1, k,1 psso, k2.

5th row: K1, *k2tog, yf, k1, yf, sl 1, k1, psso, k3; rep from * to last 6 sts, k2tog, yf, k1, yf, sl 1, k1, psso, k1.

7th row: As 3rd row.

9th row: Knit.

11th row: K7, *yf, sl 1, k1, psso, k6; rep from * to end.

13th row: K5, *k2tog, yf, k1, yf, sl 1, k1, psso, k3; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.

15th row: As 11th row.

16th row: Purl.

Rep these 16 rows.

Enjoy your weekend!

    How do you make up for the k2 together

    Hi Maria, I am not sure. I just copied this straight from the book. I’ve run into this with the vintage book on patterns I have tried – maybe knitting terms are different from what I’m used to on modern patterns. I see what you mean from looking at this, though. Did you try it? Could it work w/o the k2tog?
    In the meantime, I found this pattern which may work better: http://freeknitstitches.com/pattern.php?num=238&menu=3
