Lacy pattern for early fall knits

Right side of the pattern
Here is another variation of the ladders stitch pattern. It works best as a border or as an all-over pattern for a transitional sweater or cardigan.

Needles: US size 6 (4 mm) .

Cast on a multiple of 7+1 stitches. Add 2 more selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

Wrong side of the pattern
Row 1 (right side): *knit 1 stitch, knit 2 stitches together (right-slanting decrease), knit 1 stitch, 2 yarn overs, knit 1 stitch, SSK (left-slanting decrease)*, repeat from * to * as necessary, knit 1 last stitch.

Row 2 (wrong side): purl 1 stitch, *purl 3 stitches, knit 1 stitch, purl 3 stitches*, repeat from * to * as necessary.

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

You can also work according to the chart available at www.knitca.com/lace9 . Pattern repeat is marked by red frame.
