Some people create art with paint and a brush, and others with needles and yarn. In this post, you will learn how to knit the Rosebud Eyelet Stitch pattern and see the magic of lace knitting unfold with every stitch.
With simple eyelets, you can create the loveliest knit patterns adorning any garment or knitted item.
The Rosebud Eyelet Stitch is not only visually stunning, but it also adds a touch of elegance to any knitting project, be it a scarf, a patterned baby blanket, or a stylish sweater.
How to Knit Rosebud Eyelet Stitch Pattern
The Rosebud Eyelet knit stitch pattern has a garter stitch background. Eyelets create a circle to replicate a flower, i.e. rosebud, spaced out diagonally in every row.
The stitch is not reversible.
TIPS AND TRICKS WHEN KNITTING LACE STITCH PATTERNS
- All Lace knitting patterns have openwork, i.e.holes or openings of some sort in the knitting project.
Openings are created by increasing stitches, ie:
- ‘yarn overs‘ or
- elongated stitches (more of a slit than a hole.)
Increases are followed by decreasing stitch methods, such as k2tog (knit two stitches together) or ssk (slip, slip, knit).
When using k2tog, the decrease will be slanting to the right, whilst ssk creates a left-slanting stitch.
- To ensure even edges, slip all your first stitches, and at the end of the row, knit into the back loop.
- Use sharp-tipped knitting needles as rounded needles will make it difficult to knit the 3 stitches together through the back loop.
- I’d suggest experimenting with the combination of your yarn and needles, to obtain the best tension and pattern.
- Double Knit (Yarn weight: Light / Worsted) Elle Yarn
- Knitting Needle size according to the thickness of your yarn (I used 4mm, 6US, 8UK)
