VAN DYKE STAGGERED EYELETS

STITCH OF THE MONTH - November 2014
The Van Dyke stitch is essentially a lace chevron design. This variation staggers the v-shaped eyelets that are prominently featured in the Van Dyke stitch for an interesting overall effect. There are numerous variations of the Van Dyke stitch which include edgings and insert panels. 

This stitch would work well for baby, shawls and socks.
