An amazing, lacy, airy crochet stitch. Its uses are endless, and always beautiful. It may seem complicated at first, but with practice they'll come with ease. They're best worked with a small hook and fine thread, but even thin yarn will look fine too. You can make an inset of lovers' knots for a few rows throughout a solid piece, use it as an overlay for a solid piece with a contrasting color, or nearly anything you can think of.

If you really have trouble following this pattern, you might try writing the instructions out in longhand for yourself, or having a friend read the directions in longhand aloud to you as you work the stitch.

The multiple for this stitch is 5 + 1.
