Links of Diamonds Scarf
Thanks to my testers: Jani22, darbyrose, and socbaker.
The beads are optional. If incorporating beads, you will need 111 size 6/0 (4mm diameter) glass seed beads. The beads are placed using crochet hook method.
This scarf has a beautiful shaped edge, undulating in and out around hexagonal clusters like Spanish medallions linked together. For added glamour, incorporate glass beads as I did, or omit them if you prefer.
Links of Diamonds is part of the HeartStrings design series “It’s an Upside-Down World: directional stitches in lace”. Lovers of scarves where both ends match will delight in the attention to design and technical details of this scarf.
“Fool the eye” horizontal symmetry allows this scarf to be knit from end to end in one piece. Particular attention is also given to the cast on, bind off, and treatment of edge stitches to achieve the look of a continuous chain edging all around.
