Not only is the Vine Lace Zig Zag pattern a beautiful lace stitch, it is also an easy stitch pattern to knit.

In fact, the gorgeous lace pattern is created by the basic construction principle of a “yo, k1, yo” structure that moves 1 over for 10 rows before reversing.

Once it has moved back for another 10 rows, you have created a lovely zig-zag lace pattern.

Actually, it is also a lace pattern that you can be a bit creative with.

If you only repeat the first 10 rows, you are creating a pretty, crescent-shaped lace pattern.

Either way, this is a lace pattern that will look gorgeous in a shawl or scarf when knitted in a fine or super fine weight yarn.

This free knit stitch pattern is ideal for Level 4 - Intermediate Level Knitters
