Knitted in Artesano Alpaca Silk Lace yarn, Diamond Kites has a delicate twisted stitch pattern.

Little twisted stitch diamonds form the long “kite tails”. They lead up to the “kite head” that is made of three interlocking diamonds, again knitted in twisted stitches. The back of the sweater is longer than the front and the sides are open to the top of the rib section.

The beautiful Artesano Alpaca Silk lace yarn is available in a wide range of gorgeous shades. I have used Colour 2083, “Aubergine” for Diamond Kites. The knitted fabric with the twisted stitch design in this combination of alpaca and silk has lovely drape and is very flattering to wear.
