Ridged ribbon eyelet

You can thread a ribbon through these eyelets or use them in a colored stripe pattern. Figure 12-3 shows both a chart and a sample of this pattern.

Cast on an odd number of sts. Rows 1 and 3 (RS): Knit. Row 2: Purl. Rows 4 and 6: Knit.

Figure 12-4 shows a three-eyelet cloverleaf arranged over a stockinette background.

This cloverleaf pattern requires a multiple of 8 stitches, plus 7 more. You work a double decrease between the two bottom eyelets. To knit this pattern, follow these steps (and refer to 12-1 to see the chart for this pattern):

Cast on a multiple of 8 sts, plus 7 sts.

Row 2 and all WS rows: Purl.

Out-and-out lace patterns have more openings than solid spaces in their composition. They're frequently used in shawls or any project that cries for a more traditional lace look.

The patterns in this section are more open — meaning that they have more holes — than the eyelet patterns in the previous section. Try them in fine yarns on fine needles (think elegant cashmere scarves) or in chunky yarn on big needles for the unexpected.
