Silicon Carbide, or Moissanite, is a rare natural mineral. It is almost as hard as diamonds, and has a fiery brilliance—so it is sometimes used as a diamond gemstone substitute. I found it a fitting name for this shawl made with several different diamond motifs.
The shawl is knit from the top down with a center spine diamond panel and gradually changing diamond lace on the sides. It is designed as more than a triangle to sit snug upon the shoulders. Size is customizable - I designed the lace patterns so that any number of repeats of the individual motifs can be knit.
Both charts AND written lace directions are included. The written lace directions are the last 2 pages of the pattern.
There are 3 pages of charts.
Pattern is 8 pages total.
At least 1000 yards of fingering weight yarn will be needed. More will be needed if you add more repeats to any of the lace sections.
Sample shawl finished size:
Spine height 30 inches
Width 52 inches.
