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 1: Slip the first stitch knitwise, purl remaining stitches.

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!
