Learn how to knit the Diagonal Openwork stitch





Learn how to knit the Diagonal Openwork knit stitch. This is a fairly simple stitch that involves a combination of knits, purls, increases and decreases to create an interesting diagonal design. This stitch pattern works in multiples of 4 + 2 over an 8 row repeat.


To practice this beautiful stitch, check out the block pattern that I designed - it's a free knit pattern just for you :)
