Knitting Tutorial Thursday - Vandyke Lace

Updated: Jan 14, 2021

This is a very simple knit panel that is worked over 9 stitches and 8 rows on a background of Stockinette Stitch. Join me as I show you step by step how to create this beautiful lace. It creates a gorgeous panel that can be used in so many ways - shawls, scarves, garments, blankets....I could go on. I just love this stitch!

Written directions are below, as well as a chart and a video tutorial.

Here is an image if you'd like to pin this for later, as well.

The yarn and needles used are some of my absolute favorites. So much so that I became an affiliate with the companies. What that means for you is that when you purchase using my link, you allow the company to pay me a small commission without costing you a penny more. This helps me to continue making free tutorials and patterns. Here are the links if you’d like to check them out:
