Ribbed Mesh Stitch

 

The Ribbed Mesh stitch is a ribbed lace stitch that looks similar to the Lacy Openwork stitch. Unlike the Lacy Openwork stitch, the Ribbed Mesh stitch is not reversible and is not as thick. This stitch is very uniform, not messy and does not require blocking. It’s maintenance-free design makes it perfect for projects such as casual scarves and bags.

Trinity Stitch

Also known as the Raspberry stitch, the Trinity stitch is a beautiful stitch that has a very textured look. The stitch increases and decreases create little bobbles which resemble raspberries. The Trinity stitch is the cousin of the Berry stitch. As compared to the Berry stitch, the trinity stitch is more textured and has many gaps in the design which gives it a more lacy look. Because of the many increases and decreases, this stitch is rated intermediate.

The Trinity stitch is perfect for knitting accessories such as headbands, bracelets, scarves, etc. Because of it’s time-consuming nature, this stitch is a little too much for larger projects such as a sweater or an afghan but would work better for smaller projects or as accent designs in larger ones.

Lacy Openwork Stitch

 

Lacy Openwork stitch is a vertical ribbed lace stitch that has a bumpy texture. This stitch is a very simple stitch that is quick to knit and is great for beginning lace knitters. Unlike most ribbed lace stitches, the Lacy Openwork stitch is reversible which, in turn, makes it a more dense stitch. With it’s vertical rib design, the Lacy Openwork stitch is perfect for super long scarves.
