Double Lattice Knitting Patterns

Double Lattice

Lattice Shell Stitch

Double Lattice

Here is a pattern that will give the knitter plenty of practice in the use of twist stitches, since nearly all of them are twisted on the right-side rows. It also demonstrates how the twist-stitch technique can be a time-saver; imagine how long this handsome fabric would take to make, if all the stitches were cabled instead of twisted!

Three Twist Patterns with Openwork: Diagonal Crepe Stitch, Deep Waffle Pattern, and Wide Waffle Pattern

All three of these patterns arc deep in texture, thick but light and fluffy. Diagonal Crepe Stitch is a good thermal fabric; iry it in a pair of "longjohns"! (Very handsome ones they will be, too.) Deep Waffle Pattern comes from Switzerland, and in line yarn makes a delicate and lovely sweater or shell. Wide Waffle Pattern is an enlarged version with the pattern lines slanted more toward the horizontal.
