Cell Stitch - A pretty little lacy knitting stitch pattern

Cell Stitch - This is another one of my favorite patterns. Just have to pay attention when working with these sts. I messed up a few times while I was knitting this piece in a car. My husband was driving and we were talking. Hard to keep head focus on my knitting and talking at the same time.

I love the way the stitches are weaved together looking like people joining hands. The left slanted sts make it more interesting. They remind me of double crochet sts. I think this pattern would look great on a summer shawl or a handbag with inner lining or perhaps a shopping bag. Whatever you think it will look good on, go for it.

Here is a pattern for the Cell Stitch

Multiple of 4 sts + 3

Row 1 (right side): K2, *yf, sl, k2tog, psso, yf, k1; repeat from * to last st, k1.

Row 2: Purl.

Row 3: K1, k2tog, yf, k1, *yf, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yf, k1; repeat from * to last 3 sts, yf, sl 1, k1, psso, k1.

Row 4: Purl.

Repeat these 4 rows.

Fun Fact - Did you know that "YF (yarn forward) or often refers to as "YO" (yarn over) used to be called WF (wool forward)?. This makes sense because we do not only knit with wool any more.
