Vine Lace Zigzag

Examine Vine Lace, and you will see that its basic construction principle is a "yo, kl, yo" moved one stitch over on every other row so that the central "kl" falls above a previous "yo". This pattern is based on the same principle, except that instead of moving back and forth, the "yo, kl, yo" structure keeps going in the same direction for ten rows before reversing.

The same arrangement can be found in the beautiful Traveling Vine.

If only the first ten rows of Vine Lace Zigzag are used, the result is a rather pretty pattern of crescent shapes.

Multiple of 11 sts plus 1.

Row 1 (Wrong side) and all other wrong-side rows—Purl. Row 2—Kl, * k2 tog, k4, (yo, kl) twice, ssk, kl; rep from *. Row 4—Kl, * k2 tog, k3, yo, kl, yo, k2, ssk, kl; rep from *. Row 6—Kl, * k2 tog, k2, yo, kl, yo, k3, ssk, kl; rep from *. Row 8—Kl, * k2 tog, (kl, yo) twice, k4, ssk, kl; rep from *. Row 10—Kl, * k2 tog, yo, kl, yo, k5, ssk, kl; rep from *. Row 12—Repeat Row 8. Row 14—Repeat Row 6. Row 16—Repeat Row 4. Row 18—Repeat Row 2.

Row 20—Kl, * k2 tog, k5, yo, kl, yo, ssk, kl; rep from *. Repeat Rows 1-20.
