The Double Eyelet Rib Stitch

Stitch Description

The double eyelet rib stitch is lace substitute for traditional ribbing. With a simple four row repeat, columns of interlocking lace motifs are created. It’s a good lace stitch for beginners to explore, and relatively easy to work up. The wider ribbing makes for a bold fabric, but it’s well suited to scarves and hats.
