The Weekly Swatch: The Star Stitch

Star Stitch - Swatch Knitted with Sock Yarn

The Star Stitch is a simple lace stitch. All of the in- and decreases are worked on the wrong side, i.e. the purl-side. The right side rows are knitted throughout. 

This stitch motif produces a meshy texture, making it an ideal stitch for summer garments and accessories.
