Lattice Stitch

Oct.25, 2010

Wave Lattice Stitch is created over a multiple of 6 stitches plus 2 (6 + 2).

I worked my sample over 50 stitches to see how it would work as a jacket edging and I do believe it will work very well.

Cast on 50 stitches.

Row 1 (WS) knit 1, *knit 2, purl 4*. Repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.
Row 2 knit 1, *slip next 2 stitches to cable needle and hold in front of work, knit 2, knit 2 from the cable needle, Purl 2*, repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.
Row 3 (WS) knit 1, *knit 2, purl 4*. Repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.
Row 4 Knit 1, purl 2 *Knit 2, slip next 2 stitches to cable needle and hold in back of work, knit 2, purl 2 from cable needle*, repeat from * to last 5 stitches, knit 5.
Row 5 (WS) knit 1, *purl 4, knit 2* repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.
Row 6 knit 1, *purl 2, slip next 2 stitches to cable needle and hold in back of work, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle*, repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.
Row 7 (WS) knit 1, *purl 4, knit 2* repeat from * to last stitch, knit 1.
Row 8 Knit 5, *slip next 2 stitches to cable needle and hold in front of work, purl 2, knit 2 from cable needle. Knit 2*, repeat from * to last 3 stitches, purl 2, knit1

Repeat rows 1 – 8 to length required

My sample was created using 8 ply (double knitting) yarn. I do not have a label, but know that it has a component of possum yarn with merino. It is a bit hairy – so will not use it in my knitting, hence I am playing with it.

I will add a photographs of any pieces that I complete using this stitch.

    Thank you Meredith, and yes the Wave Lattice Stitch is certainly a lovely stitch pattern. I am going to work on the instructions for knitting it in the round, so that I can create a cowl using it. I hope it will work well and be a bit chunky and very warm, and of course gorgeous. I have asked on twitter if anyone has done that already and have not had a response, so I might be doing something quite new. We will see.
