Lace :: 4

As the weather gets warmer we want to wear something weightless. This semi-transparent stitch pattern will make a perfect top for hot summer. Easy to knit, pleasant to wear. If you use bamboo yarn for your project, you will feel comfortable even in hot weather.

Yarn shown in this swatch: Knitca Lovely 100% bamboo yarn, color 4755 Tan.
Needles: US size 6 (4 mm).

Right side of the pattern: 
Right side of knitting stitch pattern – Lace 4
Wrong side of the pattern: 
Wrong side of knitting stitch pattern – Lace 4

Cast on multiple of 4 + 2 stitches. Add 2 more selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

Row 1 (right side): knit 1 stitch, *SSK, 2 yarn overs, k2tog*, repeat from * to * to last stitch, then knit 1 stitch.
Row 2 (wrong side): purl 1 stitch *purl 2 stitches, knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch* repeat from * to * as necessary, then purl 1 stitch.

Repeat rows 1-2 till necessary for completing your project.

All abbreviations are explained in the Key to Chart.

You can also work according to the chart below. Pattern repeat is marked by red frame.

Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart) and stitches in wrong side row from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier for you the number of each row is shown at the beginning of row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in circle and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
