Eiffel Tower Stitch Eyelet Knitting Pattern

Bonjour, let’s learn how to Knit the Eiffel Tower Stitch!

With a series of yarn overs, knits, and purls, we will create this tres chic vintage stitch pattern.

Eyelets are holes within a swatch of fabric. The Eiffel Tower shape emerges atop a base of the reverse stockinette texture in alternating rows. Ooh la la!

KNITTING MATERIALS

Feel free to use any size yarn and needles for your creative project.

My Eiffel Tower Stitch sample was created with size 7 US knitting needles and worsted weight yarn, along with a Tapestry Needle and Scissors. 


KNITTING TECHNIQUES

This Eiffel Tower Stitch is an easy combination of simple Knit and Purl Stitches, along with increase and decrease stitches to create the eyelets. Find my entire library of Knitting Techniques to help knit up this project.
