Sky of Diamonds
Itching to cast on a new one skein wonder? Sky of Diamonds is an asymmetric triangle shawl with garter stitch and simple yet stunning lace.
The allover diamond lace pattern reminds of starry skies and is fun to knit. And there’s no purling! The lace is worked on the right side only, and it’s easy to memorize after the first few repeats. The picot bind off adds a delicate detail to this beautiful shawl.
Sky of Diamonds is a great project for adventurous lace beginners, and a relaxing but entertaining knit for seasoned lace knitters.
You can easily make this shawl your own by working the pattern repeat as many times as you want. The shawl works well with different yarn amounts, so you can use every last inch of your precious yarn.

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
