Mesh Stitch To The Left I - Stitch Sample

A classic and very easy lace stitch, great for any summer project. This variation of the stitch creates a fabric with inclination to the left with a combination of yarn overs and k2tog together. Another variation of the same stitch uses "slip 1, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over" instead of k2tog.

Difficulty level: Easy

Instructions

You need a stitch number multiple of 2 + 1 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the arrows as many times as you like.

Work right side rows (1, 3, etc.) from right to left, as shown in the chart. Purl all stitches on the wrong side rows.
