I Do Diamond Lace Scarf

January 2011
Lace ?
25 stitches and 18 rows = 4 inches
in lace pattern
US 6 - 4.0 mm
330 yards (302 m)
About 10" (25.5 cm) wide and 52" (132 cm) long.

Although this design suggests separate motifs that are joined together, it is knitted in a single piece. The geometric circle-in a-square motif forms a diamond, which brings to my mind a large diamond solitaire engagement ring. The squares are worked from tip to tip in diamond formation, and the sides are framed by a modified half-square and half-circle. This geometric pattern is completely reversible and requires just one skein of yarn. For a longer scarf, double the yardage and number of row repeats; for a beautiful wrap, double the yardage and number of stitches per row. With four skeins, you could double both the width and length for a luxurious shawl.
