A reversible - though not identical - diamond pattern allows this cowl to look attractive regardless of what side is showing.

Bab’s Diamonds is worked circularly in a seam-free pattern geared to looking great in almost any yarn - solid or variegated - in any weight from fingering to worsted, and in either a neck warmer size or a more lush infinity cowl.

Bab’s Diamonds are more visible ash the “wrong” side of the fabric as knitted. Sew yarn ends in carefully so you have a completely reversible item.

Worsted uses 5mm needle, works at a gauge of 18sts = 4”/10cm and takes 190m/200yd for neck warmer, 380m/410yd for infinity.

DK uses 4mm needle, works at a gauge of 22sts = 4”/10cm and takes 220m/240yd for neck warmer, 440m/480yd for infinity.

Sport uses 3.5mm needle, works at a gauge of 24sts = 4”/10cm and takes 167m/180yd for neck warmer, 335/360yd for infinity.

Fingering uses 3.0mm needle, works at a gauge of 28sts = 4”/10cm and takes 183m/200yd for neck warmer, 366m/400yd for infinity.

Note: A version of this pattern called “Duelling Diamonds OF DEATH!” was previously published as an exclusive pattern to the Smart-Ass Knitter/World Domination Club with Indigodragonfly yarns in August 2013.
