Introduction

Diamond socks and / or slippers is a great pattern for beginners! Knitted from the toe up to the cuff, Diamond has a fun to knit geometric stitch motif, where small diamonds create a big one, and most of the fabric is worked circular in Stockinette Stitch. The pattern is adjustable and you can try as you knit, as we can do with top down sweaters! I hope you enjoy and have a fun knitting time with Diamond socks and / or slippers!
