Nov 20th 2015 Swatch - Vandyke Lace

Vandyke Lace Swatch

Copyright © Janet Nogle 2015

Size:  4 ½ X 4 ½
1 skein Cotton yarn
#6 Knitting needles

This is a lace cloth. 

Note: This is a panel design and works well with something you are making that has length to it.  It is hard to photograph but has a heart like vine going up the middle.

K2Tog = Knit 2 together
SKP = Slip 1, Knit 1, Pass slip stitch over
The lace pattern is a multiple of 17. I added 3 border stitches on each side = 23

Cast on 23
Rows 1-2:       Knit across

Row 1:                        (RS) K3, *K2Tog, YO, K1, YO SKP* Repeat between *’s one more time; K3, YO, SKP, K2, K3
Row 2:                        K3, P17, K3
Row 3:                        K3, (K2Tog, YO, K1, YO, SKP, K1) x2, K2Tog, YO, K1, YO, SKP, K3

Repeat above 6 rows to desired length (I repeated 4 times and repeated rows 1-4 once more)

Vandyke Lace Cloth

We will work 2 panels down the middle and add border stitches.
Multiple of 17 stitches (17 x 2= 34 + 6 border = 40)

Follow the above directions repeating between *‘s as directed. You will be repeating more times than in our swatch (double them).  These are general directions for this pattern.
