The Twin Leaf Lace Stitch

Stitch Description

The twin leaf knitting stitch pattern creates columns of lace eyelets that look like a branch full of leaves. These can be used in a repeat to create a lacy fabric or on their own as a panel detail. It’s a beautiful stitch that will look great in a scarf, shawl, or the body of a sock.
