How to Knit the Perforated Lace Stitch

This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the perforated lace stitch. When it comes to knitting lace, it doesn’t get much more basic than this. Using simple yarn overs and decreases this pattern creates a fabric covered in little staggered holes.

Skill: Intermediate
Cast On: Multiples of 5 + 2

For this pattern you will need to know the following techniques:
Knit – k
Purl – p
Knit Two Together – k2tog
Yarn Over – yo

Pattern Instructions:

Row 1: *K1, yo, k2tog; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 2: P1, *p1, k1, p1; rep from * to end.
Row 3: *K1, k2tog, yo; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 4: P1, *k1, p2; rep from * to end.

Repeat rows 1 – 4 until you have reached your desired length.

After a few repeats your pattern should look like this:

    cheers with a huge thank you for all you do very much appreciated.  I am new to this thus, please have a kind heart with regards to my question – I like the salvage stitch, as you don’t include it in the pattern are we to cast on multiples of 3 + 2 to achieve this, also may ask if you are aware that the youtube video you say 3 +1 but it is written on the screen as 5 +2-I ask this because it doesn’t take much to confuse me lol – again being new to this as well-if I may state love this stitch very nice indeed.  a little ps:  good luck to you with your up-coming move and new adventure much success to you-also hoping this doesn’t change your down home ease you share with us very kind way thanks again

       @chicklette You would add 2 to the 3+1 for the selvedge stitch. That gives you an extra stitch on each end. You would then slip the first stitch in pattern (knitwise one the right side and purlwise on the wrong side) and then for the last stitch of each row, either knit through the back loop on the right side or purl through the back loop on the wrong side.
       
      The 5+2 is a typo. Unfortunately I can’t fix Youtube videos once they’re posted.
