Diamond Knit Shawl

Lion Brand® Homespun®


8 sts = 4" [10 cm]. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Sl 2 kwise-k1-p2sso Slip 2 stitches together knitwise (as though to knit), knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over the knit stitch = centered double decrease.


It is recommended that you use a circular needles to hold all the stitches and work back and forth.

Diamond Knit Shawl Reviewed by Robyn Booth on 2013-03-13 ****
I had not knit many lace patterns and was a little apprehensive to make this shawl. The pattern was easy to follow and the shawl is beautiful. I am now hooked on lace patterns.
