My love of the diamond motif has carried through my latest shawl designs in 2012 and ♦A Year of Diamonds♦ is the queen! Undulating lace wave patterns in the body of this crescent shape shawl transition into a border full of diamonds crowned by the flowery edge. Beads in the border and edging add that special sparkle to the diamonds and their crowning
glory. Enjoy!

Charts and written row by row instructions are included as well as detailed crochet edging and blocking instructions.
Patterning on WS is purled.

Measurements and yarn usage is determined by weight of yarn, needle size and blocking techniques.
For example, the smaller size used 366 yds of lace on
US#4(3.5mm) needles, measured 54” x 17” and; 450 yds of
fingering weight on US#5(3.75mm) needles.
The large size used 678 yds of lace on US #4, measured
68” x 21”; and 620 yds of fingering weight on US #5,
measured 72” x 21”.
Gauge and blocking are the key factors in size and yarn usage differences as individual knitting and blocking techniques vary greatly. So if you are a relaxed lace knitter, be sure to have an extra 10% on hand :)
