Diamond Lace Stitch (DLS)

by Kristen Mangus

April 9, 2015

Notes:

  • All stitches are twisted (tbl through the back loop).
  • Repeat pattern in multiples of 2 rows.
  • Each stitch on the row gets knitted twice, by the end of the row, making that row twice the height of a standard stockinette row.
  • Use stitch marker to mark beginning of row. (Ex. 2 rows of Diamond Lace Stitch equals 4 rows stockinette).

Instructions for knitting in the round on circular or DPN.

Sl pw – Slip 1 purl wise (slide stitch from left need to right needle not twisting)
