New stitch on the blog! The good weather is soon upon us and we want to knit some lace. That type of easy lace that makes for a great spring sweater. The one we are going to show you today is the cell lace stitch. You can create more defined textures with it in cotton or, as in today’s post, more subtle texture made with a lighter weight fiber.

For this tutorial we used a skein of our Bamboo yarn and a pair of size 2,5 circular needles.

Before beginning, as always, we give you a list of stitches that you will need to know to knit this stitch:

NOTE: Even though we are going to use circular needles for this step-by-step tutorial, we will be knitting flat, as if we were using straight needles.

To knit this stitch we will cast on an even number of stitches.

Row 1 (right side): start by knitting 1 stitch.

*Insert the right-hand needle through the last and next to last stitch on the left-hand needle.

  Wrap the yarn around the right needle and pull out the working yarn, as if you were knitting a stitch, you will create a stitch that you should leave on your right-hand needle.

 Then knit 2 stitches through the back loop*.

Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. To finish the row, knit the last stitch.

Row 2 (wrong side): purl all stitches.

Row 3 (right side): start the row by knitting 2 stitches. *Next, insert the right-hand needle through the last and next to last stitch on the left needle, wrap the yarn around the right needle and pull up the yarn onto your right-hand needle as if you were knitting a stitch, you will have created a stitch (the same as in row 1) that you should keep on your right-hand needle. Now knit 2 stitches together through the back loop*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. To finish the row, knit the last 2 stitches.

Row 4 (wrong side): purl all stitches.

                To continue knitting this stitch, keep repeating rows 1 to 4 until you reach the desired length.

We hope you enjoyed knitting this stitch with us. A simple lace but with many possibilities. As always, we love to see the projects you use these stitches for through social networks using the hashtag #weareknitters.
