Diamonds, Please is a graceful sport-weight shawl featuring relaxing stockinette and garter stitch, an optional picot edging, and a sprinkling of diamonds.

This shawl is knitted from the top down, beginning with a stockinette-stitch triangle. Slip-stitch columns grow into lace diamonds that dance along the bottom edge of the shawl.  Fully written instructions are provided, along with optional charts.

Throughout the design, sections of the lace alternate with sections of bias stockinette and garter stitch, making for an engaging knit. Shaped like a rectangle with pointed ends, the finished piece is easy to wear and eye-catching, rich with interesting diagonals and textures. 

For best results when working with hand dyed yarns we strongly suggest alternating skeins of the same color throughout your project.
