Chinese Lace Stitch - Learn to Knit (Continental Style)

Updated: Jan 22



This is a beautiful lace stitch that is worked over 12 stitches and 24 rows. I have been intrigued by this pattern for a very long time and decided to jump in and learn it. Then, a tutorial was born because I just HAD to share it with you!


This pattern does require concentration, but once you get the hang of it, it isn’t very difficult. Join me as I show you step by step how to create this beautiful lace.


The written directions and chart are below and the video tutorial for this stitch is available at the bottom of this post.

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 to check them out:
