Hey there! Today I am very happy to be sharing a video tutorial with you on how to knit daisy lace! Even if you are new to knitting lace, you will be able to watch the video and follow along with the lace pattern written out below. Hopefully you will find that knitting lace is quite fun!
Once you learn the basics of lace though knitting this lace pattern, you will find that other lace patterns use similar techniques to create a variety of designs.
This daisy lace pattern is used in my original design “Blossoming Beauty“, so if you like it, you can incorporate it into a tank top or dress using my pattern! I am also hosting a Spring Knit-Along from April 5th – May 5th, so if you decide to knit this pattern, please join in on the knit-along forum on Ravelry here!
Here is the stitch pattern that I use in the video tutorial (which you will find at the bottom of the page) so you can follow along:
k2tog: knit 2 stitches together
psso: pass slipped stitch over
tbl: through back loop
yo: yarn over
Note: This will make a square swatch of 2 repeats of the daisy lace stripe pattern. In the video I used US Size 5 needles and a worsted weight yarn so that you would be able to see my work more clearly, though the “Blossoming Beauty” tank top and dress design uses a US Size 4 needles a sport weight cotton yarn, Paton’s Grace.
