Some people dream of diamonds made of carbon. Me? I dream of diamonds made of silk and merino! I started with a completely different design, but thought this up while I was half asleep and knew I had to frog what I’d done, no matter how impractical, to follow the inspiration. And I have no regrets, because I’m completely in love with the end result. The Dream of Diamonds Wrap is a reminder to follow your dreams, whatever you may be dreaming of, and to pursue the things that inspire you and make you happiest.

The Dream of Diamonds Wrap is designed to be exceedingly wearable. The textured diamond is precisely in the center of the wrap. It’s reversible, and the wrap can be worn in a million different ways to display different parts of the diamond. You can also flip it so it goes light to dark or dark to light. The wrap is worked flat, from the bottom up. It’s customizable and includes instructions for making the wrap bigger or smaller.

Sample
Sample used Seven Sisters Arts Matrika (fingering weight; 80% sw merino/20% silk; 400yds/100g), 1200yds/300g in the Water Garden Varigradient consisting of Damselfly (color A), Water Lilies (color B), and Water Nymph (color C)

Thanks to Seven Sisters Arts for providing the yarn for the pattern sample!

Yarn, Yardage, and Colors
The pattern calls for three skeins in coordinating colors, with an equal amount of each color. It was designed for a varigradient or similar fade set, but also works amazingly in just one color. It pairs best with a solid, lightly speckled, or gradient, or any other color style that will show off the texture. The sample is shown in a fingering weight but works well in anything from a laceweight to a chunky. It’s adjustable to work with any yardage.
