zig zag lace edging pattern

I want to share with you my most used lace edging that form zigzag edge. My granny taught me that and I use it all the time. Very simple and easy to knit.

And here comes written instructions.

NOTE! One pattern repeat is 12 stitches.

1: *k1, YO, k3, k2tog, p, s1k2tog, k3, YO* repeat to end;
2: *k6, p, k5* repeat to end;

Repeat these two rows / rounds as long as you need your lace border to be. Knitted lace on the picture (at the beginning of this post) is 8 repeats long (total of 16 rounds).

*One pattern repeat makes one corner. Like so:

Now you try. I would like to see your outcome – leave me a comment below. Have fun! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your pattern, it’s beautiful and seems relatively simple – thank you so much, I’ve been looking all over for something easy to follow for an edging on boot toppings that I’d like to make as Christmas gifts and I found it!! Your directions are very clear and your picture helps so much – I’m really thankful you mention how many rows created what you show in the picture!! Mary
