Bamboo Lace

Pattern 3

This sample was knit in crochet rayon with 3mm needles and measures 10cm at it's widest point and 18.5 cm high. I worked the pattern through 6 times. I suggest working your last repeat to row 10, then cast off to obtain a neat finish on the top edge. As you can see, I cast off after row 12 and it's a bit bumpy. Cast off all sts loosely, especially on rows 11 and 12).

Cast on 20 sts.

Row 1: K8, P1, K3, P1, K7 (20sts)

Row 2: K8, K2tog, YO twice, K2tog, K3, (YO, K2tog) twice, YO, K1 (21sts)

Row 3: K11, P1, K4, (YO, K2tog) twice, YO, K1 (22sts)

Row 4: K7, (K2tog, YO twice, K2tog) twice, K2, (YO, K2tog) twice, YO, K1 (23sts)
