Diamante is an asymmetric, bias knit, triangular, 2-color, garter shawl with a touch of lace. The shawl is knit in DK yarn and uses the diamond lattice lace pattern. The garter stitch makes it a simple and soothing knit, while the diamond lace adds a bit of challenge to your knitting.

Now available in Spanish too, thanks to Julia (Kyanitemoon)

Available in one size, the shawl is customizable to smaller/larger sizes by decreasing or increasing the garter and/or lace sections. Being garter-based, the shawl makes for a wonderful TV or travel knitting project. You can customize the garter section by adding stripes in one or more colors, so it’s a great way to use your scrap yarn too! All you need is 2 skeins of DK yarn for the main colour and half a skein in a contrast color for the lace.
