Day 6: How to Knit the Lacy Chain Stitch {31 Days of Knitting Series}

Today is Day 6 of our 31 Days of Knitting Challenge. This stitch is a fun lacy stitch that you can use to run up sweaters, socks or scarfs. If you grew up in the 90’s, this look might remind you of something you used to see drawn all over binders everywhere :). It’s called the lacy chain stitch.
