Welcome stashbusters!

Do you have one skein of DK weight yarn, but don’t know what to make out of it? (Bonus points if it’s variegated!)

Do you dislike purl stitches? But don’t want to be bored knitting garter stitch forever and ever?

I have something that may interest you!

Silken Diamonds is knit with one skein of swanky DK weight yarn that has been waiting to become the perfect accessory.

This is a purl-free scarf that’ll be great for travel knitting or something to do between more complex projects when you want a quick knit that isn’t boring.

Silken Diamonds is adjustable and reversible ~ the interlaced eyelet diamonds look great no matter which side is showing!
