  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This elegant rectangular wrap features two skeins of the main color framing three contrast colors. I-cord edges frame the perimeter of the shawl while slip stitches produce smooth diagonal lines for the diamond motif. This pattern is very easy to customize by binding off early for a shorter wrap or knitting more rows for a larger size. I featured Mominoki’s fingering weight Ramie Silk base, a supremely lustrous blend of merino, silk, and ramie fibers.

    You can use any fingering weight yarn for this pattern, but I highly recommend a silk blend like Mominoki Ramie Silk to reflect the shining diamonds inspiration. The drape is just divine for this classic wide rectangle shape.

  • Finished Measurements
    82′′ / 208cm wingspan length, 20′′ / 51cm wide. Measurements taken after blocking.

    Fingering Weight

    MC - 880yds / 805m
    CC1 - 280yds / 256m
    CC2 - 280yds / 256m
    CC3 - 280yds / 256m

    You can easily customize the length of the wrap, so if you have fewer yards of the MC such as 780yds / 713m of MC, you can still knit a generously sized wrap. Simply work fewer diamond pattern repeats and bind off a little early to customize the size.

    Tapestry needle

    24 sts & 40 rows = 4′′ / 10cm in diamond pattern after blocking
