How to Knit the Snowdrop Lace Stitch

You will not believe how easy it is to master the snowdrop lace stitch when you check out this video tutorial. Lace knitting has a bit of a reputation for being overly complicated and not worth the effort. That's simply not the case with this lace pattern, however. Perfect for beginners, this pattern only uses simple increases and decreases -- the yarn over and the knit two together.

Plus, since this is a repetitive lace knit stitch, you will be able to perfectly achieve any snowdrop lace stitch pattern you put your mind to. Let this video tutorial be your guide into creating a gorgeous new knitting pattern! There are only three rows of lacing in this repeat of seven rows that you have to learn; unlike some lace, this pattern is one you can easily memorize.

I love this. I'm a visual learner, so it's hard for me to look at a pattern of instructions and imagine what I need to be doing to create a stitch pattern. This is such a gorgeous stitch. Can't wait to try it!

This is such a beautiful stitch. The video tutorial does a great job of explaining how to complete the process and the end result is truly fabulous.
