Graffiti Wrap

Knit on the very biggest needles there are and using a simple eyelet stitch, the Graffiti Wrap is a great baby-steps introduction to lace knitting.

This lace stitch really gets the most mileage out of the yarn.  Try the same pattern with smaller yarn and needles, and you will get a more delicate lace.  I love using this lace pattern in just about everything!  (See the Lace Beret and Lacy Beret: Chunky Edition)

Graffiti Wrap

Materials: US size 35 or 50 needles, 2 balls Katia Inca

Cast on 25 sts.

Row 2: Slip the first stitch purlwise, k1, *yo, k2tog.  Repeat from * until 1 st remains, k1.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until desired length.  (I used about 1 and a half balls.)  Cast off loosely.  Weave in ends.

  1. I love this. I just got a pair of size 50 knitting needles as a gift from my boyfriend when he was shopping. I looked at them and had no idea at first what to do with them. I knew you can knit up a scarf pretty quickly with such big needles and super bulky yarn…but wasn’t sure where to go with it in terms of pattern. This is perfect. I am definitely going to get that yarn (it’s gorgeous) and knit this up!

  2. Hmmm. Make sure you are only repeating the yo, k2tog until the end of the row. Also make sure you are only yarning over before you knit 2 together. If you accidentally yarn over before the knit 1 at the end of the row, you will add a stitch. Likewise, make sure you do YO before every k2tog, otherwise you will decrease your number of stitches. I hope that helps!
