jewel of a scarf Links of Diamonds has a beautiful shaped edge,
undulating about the hexagonally clustered diamond shapes that appear to be
linked together. For added glamour, incorporate glass beads as I did, or omit
them if you prefer. Shown in Windy Valley Merino, color #7006; Miyuki
beads color #6-257 Dark Topaz Transparent AB.
Links of Diamonds is the latest
design in the series "It's an Upside-Down World: directional stitches in lace".
Lovers of scarves where both ends match will delight in the attention to design
and technical details of this scarf.
"Fool the eye" horizontal symmetry
allows this scarf to be knit from end to end in one piece. Particular attention
is also given to the cast on, bind off, and treatment of edge stitches to
achieve the look of a continuous chain edging all around.
Outer finished measurements: 62"
by 12". Plan for 425 yards lace weight or light weight fingering yarn. Suggested
knitting needle size is US 5 / 3.75mm. You'll also need a size G (4 mm) crochet
hook for casting on. If you use the beads, you'll need 111 size 6/0 (4 mm
diameter) glass seed beads (approx 10g) and a crochet hook that is small enough
to insert into holes in the beads.
