Pattern Description:

I was given this absolutely beautiful fiber. It was incredibly soft and oh so special. What was this fiber? It was Royal Suri Alpaca fiber from Peru. I was only given a small amount (less than an ounce) so I knew I wanted to make something special with it once it was spun up. I chose to spin it on my Siberian Russian spindles. The resulting yarn was incredible. Very soft and it had a nice halo. The spun yarn is what inspired this pattern. I wanted something that would showcase the yarn without hiding the lovely lace pattern. I also wanted something that lent itself very nicely to beading. I took the yarn with when I went to pick out and purchase beads. I wanted a bead that would flatter the yarn without overpowering it. I wanted a bead that was subtle, yet would surprise you with a bit of sparkle. The end result is Peruvian Diamonds
This is a wonderful pattern in which to knit until you run out of yarn. Be sure to weigh your yarn before you start. Weigh it again after you have completed the 6 row garter stitch border. This will tell you about how much yarn you will need for the 6 row garter stitch border on the other end, plus the bind off.
