DIAMONDS for LISA is a semi-circular shawl with a deep, romantic, diamond patterned border. A luscious and drapey shawl, Diamonds for Lisa is perfect over your shoulders in a chilly restaurant or on an evening walk. Luxury is everything with this shawl, so definitely indulge in a special yarn like Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20. You’ll be glad you did!

This easy yet engaging wrap is worked to an open gauge to encourage drape and uses a half-moon shaping strategy. Its rich border is worked as a bind off after shaping is complete.

I wrote this pattern for my friend, Lisa, who, like this wrap is mysterious and feminine without being girly. She’s an individualist and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Here ya go, Lisa…Cheers!
