Knitted in a multiple of 10 stitches plus 9, the Lacy Eyelet Points stitch is a lace pattern which resembles triangles made of eyelets. Done in a 12-row repeat, this knit stitch is rated easy for its use of basic lace techniques such as yarn over (yo), ssk (slip, slip, knit), and k2tog (knit 2 together). Like most lace stitch patterns, in order to get the full effects of this lace design, blocking is recommended.
Multiple of 10 sts + 9
Row 1 (RS): k3, *k1, yo, ssk, k7; rep from * to the last 6 sts, k1, yo, ssk, k3.
Row 2 and all even rows: purl.
Row 3: k2, k2tog, *yo, k1, yo, ssk, k5, k2tog; rep from * to the last 4 sts, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2.
Row 5: k1, k2tog, yo, *k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo; rep from * to the last 6 sts, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k1.
Row 7: k3, *k6, yo, ssk, k2; rep from * to the last 6 sts, k6.
Row 9: k3, *k4, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k1; rep from * to the last 6 sts, k6.
Row 11: k3, *k3, (k2tog, yo) x2, k1, yo, ssk; rep from * to the last 6 sts, k6.
Row 12: purl.
Repeat rows 1-12.
yo (yarn over): wrap the yarn around the right-hand needle from back to front counterclockwise before knitting the next stitch. Then work the next stitch as normal.
ssk (slip, slip, knit): slip the next 2 stitches knitwise, one at a time, insert the left-hand needle through the front of both loops and knit them together.
k2tog (knit 2 together): insert the right-hand needle into the first two stitches on the left-hand needle and wrap the working yarn around the right-hand needle as if you would for a knit stitch. Pull the yarn through both stitches and slide both stitches off the left-hand needle. You have now knitted two stitches together thus resulting in a right-leaning decrease.
