Flower Bud Lace Stitch

The Flower Bud Lace stitch is a lace stitch that is similar to the Lacy Floret stitch. Both of these stitches produce “flower bud” designs but the Flower Bud Lace stitch knits a larger flower bud. With its elegant look and its excellent drape, this stitch is perfect for shawls and scarves or even a linen beach cover-up.
