Queen of Diamonds Shawl
This shawl uses 3 different diamond motifs to fill its panels. The motifs increase in size towards the bottom of the shawl and are worked on a background of garter stitch. A slightly ruffled edge is cleverly created with a k2tog bind off.
Approximately 72” wide across top edge and 32” long at center after blocking.
20sts and 20 rows to 4” in garter stitch
Shawl is worked in 4 panels, each panel is separated from the next by two garter stitches. There is also a 2-stitch garter stitch selvedge at the beginning and end of each row. The chart includes the garter stitches in between panels, but the knitter must knit 1 selvedge stitch at the beginning and end of each row before working the chart. This is noted in the instructions.
Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.
Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, which we hope to accomplish by the end of 2015, so we ask for your patience.
Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering 6 free patterns per month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
