Knit Stitch Patterns

Knit Stitch Pattern Saturday

Here is a knit lace pattern that is simple with only an 8 row repeat over 11 stitches.  It is called King Charles Lace.

The center 11 stitches are the pattern forming a diamond shape with a curved outer edge.  For my swatch, I cast on 25 stitches and worked a stockinette stitch over 5 stitches on each side and 2 stitch edging of garter stitch so it would not curl.

The photo is on size 7 needles using worsted weight yarn.  Each square of the background is one inch.  I repeated the pattern 3 times to give me a 4 inch length.

Now to decide what to design with this lovely lace insert.  Maybe it belongs in a fancy washcloth, maybe part of the edge of a place mat for my dining table, maybe even as part of a nice blanket.

What would you use this stitch pattern to create?
