The Vandyke Lace Panel is a very simple knit panel that is worked over 9 stitches and 8 rows on a background of Stockinette Stitch. Join me as I show you step by step how to create this beautiful lace panel. It creates a gorgeous panel that can be used in so many ways – shawls, scarves, garments, blankets….I could go on. I just love this stitch!

Written directions are below, as well as a chart and a video tutorial.

The yarn and needles used are some of my absolute favorites. So much so that I became an affiliate with the companies. What that means for you is that when you purchase using my link, you allow the company to pay me a small commission without costing you a penny more. This helps me to continue making free tutorials and patterns. Here are the links if you’d like to check them out:
