Knit Floral Block: Lace Bouquet

This generic pattern can be used with whatever yarn and hook/needle size you prefer.



Three small bobbles enhance the openwork of this motif. The curving stems are created by changing from patterning on right-side rows to patterning on both sides of the work.

Equipment A pair of knitting needles

Cast on 23 sts.

Beginning with a k row, work in st-st from the chart, reading RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right, as indicated by row numbering.

When 29th row has been completed, bind off knitwise.

To neaten the sides, RS facing, pick up and k23 sts along one edge then bind off knitwise. Do the same along the second edge.
