The Knotted Openwork Stitch is a lace pattern with a lattice-like mesh with a unique knotted texture. This stitch creates a dense, sturdy fabric but maintains some flexibility, making it great for market bags. It’s made using a relatively simple pattern repeat, but some knitters might find the unusual construction a challenge.
Overall, the knotted openwork stitch is a beautiful pattern that’s perfect for large pieces of fabric like scarves, shawls, and blankets.
