Pattern Description from MarnieMacLean.com: “My mother gave me a few balls of Diva yarn and I knew I wanted to do something that was simple enough to make the yarn itself a focal point. Ok, so I can’t exactly wear this thing to work, but you can’t help but feel a little like a starlet walking around in something this luxurious and sassy. Pair it with a clean black trouser, or a flamenco skirt and you’ll be a boa away from having your own star on the Walk of Fame.”

Gauge: 22st x 28rows = 4”

Supplies:

  • #8 straight or circular needles
  • #7 26” or 28” circular needles
  • 2 skeins of Diva in silver
  • 1 skein of Diva in black
  • Crochet hook size B
  • Black Upholstery Thread (found at craft store)
  • Various beads (found at craft store)
  • Metal choker (found at craft store in beading aisle)

Yarn Substitution: Diva is a metallic yarn with just a touch of eyelash, and works up at about a worsted weight. Substitute with any worsted weight yarn, though a combo of a very fine mohair and a metallic worsted weight yarn, would produce a similar effect.

Stitches Used:

  • Stockinette (STst)
  • 2x2 Ribbing (K2P2 or P2K2)
  • Make 1/Knit 2 tog (M1 K2tog)
  • Single crochet and chain stitch (sc and ch)
