The Little Arrowhead Lace stitch pattern is a popular lace stitch pattern that is fun and easy to knit for beginning lace knitters and experienced lace knitters alike. In this video, Jen Lucas walks you through how to knit this stunning stitch pattern.


The stitch pattern is worked over a multiple of 6 stitches plus 1 extra stitch. The one additional stitch will allow the stitch pattern to be centered on the knitted fabric, when working back in forth in rows, as is demonstrated in the video. The pattern is repeated for 4 rows. The instructions for the pattern are as follows:

Worked over a multiple of 6+1 sts.

Row 1 (RS): K1, *yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k1; rep from * to end.

Row 2 (WS): Purl all sts.

Row 3: K1, *k1, yo, sk2p, k2; rep from * to end.

Row 4: Purl all sts.

Rep Rows 1 – 4 for pattern.


k: knit

k2tog: knit two stitches together

p: purl

rep: repeat

sk2p: slip one stitch purlwise, knit two stitches together, pass the slipped stitch over

ssk: slip a stitch as if to knit to right needle, slip a second stitch as if to knit to right needle, slip both stitches back to left needle and knit together through the back loops

st(s): stitch(es)

yo: yarn over

This stitch pattern is great for beginners, as it’s only four rows and two of those rows are worked entirely in purl stitches. The pattern is perfect for any kind of knitting project out there, and hopefully you give it a try!
