Here is a subtle and graceful lace, of French origin. Part of its charm lies in the fact that the decrease stitches are placed apart from the yo's for which they compensate, and used to form small corded ribs that are gently curved to left and right. Note that on all right-side rows one extra stitch is added to each pattern repeat, and on all wrong-side rows the extra stitch is taken off.

Multiple of 8 sts plus 4.

Row 1 (Right side)—K2, * yo, kl-b, yo, ssk, k5; rep from *, end k2.

Row 2—P6, * p2 tog-b, p7; rep from *, end last rep p5.

Row 3—K2, * yo, kl-b, yo, k2, ssk, k3; rep from *, end k2.

Row 5—K2, * kl-b, yo, k4, ssk, kl, yo; rep from *, end k2.

Row 7—K2, * k5, k2 tog, yo, kl-b, yo; rep from *, end k2.

Row 8—P5, * p2 tog, p7; rep from *, end last rep p6.

Row 9—K2, * k3, k2 tog, k2, yo, kl-b, yo; rep from *, end k2.

Row 11—K2, * yo, kl, k2 tog, k4, yo, kl-b; rep from *, end k2.
