Monthly Pattern - April - Net Curtains

Posted on


ribbon stitch square

You will need:

Cotton yarn – or a cotton / acrylic mix

6mm knitting needles – you can go larger if you want a more lace effect

This is a reworking from a pattern I saw by Naomi Parkhurst while looking for an open work mesh.  I have simplified the method for you to follow.

Cast on stitches in multiples of 4.

Row 1: *knit 2 stitches together, yarn round needle twice, knit 2 stitches together – repeat from * to end of row.

Row 2: *knit 1, (knit 1, purl 1) in yarn round needle loops, knit 1 – repeat from * to end of row.

Row 3: knit.


Cast on 40 stitches will give you 10”

Cast on 160 stitches and work to cover a door in the summer – they look amazing – you get the fresh breeze and it keeps the bugs out.

Take one step further –

-       Using the maths you can create any length curtain – work a narrow café frill – or a whole door curtain.

-       Use the same technique to make a shawl – or a scarf.

-       Make a top by sewing into a tube and adding straps.
