Diamond Crescent Shawl

Diamond Crescent Shawl

 The Diamond Crescent shawl will have you dripping in diamonds...  
textural diamonds and diamond eyelets, to be precise!
No fancy skills required to create this gem. 
Just knits, purls and some simple increases and decreases is all you need.

Worked flat from the center neck out, you’ll create a field of diamonds, a myriad of dots, and elegant diamond eyelets, with garter ridges bordering each section. Simple increases create the crescent shape that effortlessly hugs your shoulders and arms.
