Knitting cat's eye lace is a great way to learn a basic stitch without much effort. You can use this stitch to make anything from shawls to scarves that you are sure to love.

This particular lace stitch is a variant on basic mesh knitting. It's slightly more advanced, but if you can do a simple yarn over, follow some repeats, and a few p2togs, you'll have this lace stitch memorized in no time.

This pattern is also great because it's only a four-row repeat. Some of our favorite lace stitches are four-row repeat, and it allows you to learn it quickly and get creative with it in your own knitting patterns and designs.

I need written directions for the Cat's Eye stitch. It helps me to have both the visual and the written instructions.

Are there written directions for the Cat's Eye stitch shown in this video, or do we have to try to copy them down for ourselves. Not impossible LOL but ...
