Small V lace is a cute lace stitch pattern, consisting of 2 types of single decreases and yarn overs. It’s very suited for both all-over patterning, and use in an accent panel. This stitch pattern is worked in a multiple of 8 + 1 stitches. Please note that in the above picture, I’ve added 2 edge stitches in garter stitch on both sides of the swatch.
Yarn: Paintbox Yarns Simply DK, a good value, good quality 100% acrylic yarn, here in the color Tea Rose
Knitting needles: This is a pair of straights that I picked up at the second-hand store when I started knitting, brand unknown.
- k – knit
- p – purl
- k2tog – knit 2 stitches together
- skp – slip 1, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch. Replace this decrease with a ssk, if preferred.
- yo – yarn over
