Basic Skills Necessary:

  • a familiarity with lace and beading is helpful

Pattern Description:

Large or small, the diamond (or rhombus) shape is a classic. It is elegant, structural, and timeless. Utilising a variety of large rhombus motif, Rhombi are a Girl's Best Friend is the perfect shawl for bringing in the New Year!

This shawl can be knit in lace or fingering weight, (yardage listed is for lace weight only). It is knit on both sides for a large part of the motif and is surprisingly complex to knit. I used my full skein and ended with a contrasting yarn (as did my test knitter) which gives a nice look on the edge. There is a small bead detail, but may also want to include beads in your BO for added glamour as you dance the year away.

9.5 stitches and 13 rows = 2 inches in stockinette
gauge is not critical to project, please use as a guideline.
