Links of Diamonds Scarf
HeartStrings knitting pattern #H66
This jewel of a scarf 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 part of the HeartStrings design 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 475 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.
