Diamond Lace Stitch (DLS)
by Kristen Mangus
- 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.
