Lapidary- a person who works with precious stone. Also, of/relating to gemstones. From the Latin lapidarius. This design came out of playing with diamonds. Playing with the way they fit together, the way you can build larger diamonds out of smaller diamonds, and the way you can carve smaller diamonds out of larger ones.

Lapidarius is a rectangular shawl with a cast on edge at one end, a bind off edge at the other and 12 repeats of the 48 row repeat in between.
