Today we are going to learn how to make a traditional stitch made up of lacy triangles. It never goes out of style and you can use if for any of your projects. It’s the perfect stitch for good weather, an airy design to make light-weight garments. 

Even if you are a beginner you can try this stitch, the techniques used are very easy, and if you are having trouble you can watch the videos linked below. You just have to find some time, grab your needles and get to work!

The materials we used today are:

What do you need to know to knit this stitch?

For this example we cast on 25 stitches so that we get two complete triangles with a 3-stitch separation on the base. When you do the cast on, remember that the base of the triangle requires 8 stitches, plus the number of stitches you want between each triangle.

We started with two rows of stockinette before beginning the pattern so you can see the design better.

Row 1. Knit 3,*yarn over, SKPO*. Repeat from * to * 4 times. Knit 3. Repeat from * to * 4 times. Knit 3.

Row 2 (and the remaining even rows). Purl all stitches.

Row 3. Knit all stitches.

Row 15. Knit all stitches… and you’re done!

Continue repeating rows 1 to 15 as many times as you like.

As you can see it is easier than it looks at first; once you master the SKPO you’re ready to tackle this stitch.
