Little Bells Stitch

The Little Bells stitch is a lace stitch which involves intermediate lace knitting techniques. Knitted in a multiple of 8 stitches plus 3 and worked in a 12-row repeat, this stitch offers a level of difficulty that is perfect for knitters who are ready to step it up a notch. The Little Bells stitch offers excellent drape and looks great as both an accent piece as well as a main project.
