An Early Christmas Present

To thank all of you for your support & encouragement in my designing efforts, this is my present to you .....

..... A Girl's Best Friend, so named as it has a pretty diamond border & I love diamonds.


It is a shawlette which is knitted from point to point. The gradual increases & decreases allow for longer ends so that you can wrap around the neck like a scarf. The middle section is big enough to cover most of the back so you can still wear it like a shawl. I love this shape as I feel the typical triangular shawl is too wide to wrap around the neck.


It's also an easy pattern to knit as you can memorise the diamond edging very quickly. So there's still time to knit one for Christmas. All it takes is a skein of sock yarn & I am sure many of you have one in your stash.

Download your copy from Ravelry. Happy knitting !

Thank you so much for yet another gorgeous pattern!!! I have been looking for a semi-circle type pattern, there aren't very many out there. It will be perfect for handspun yarn, too!
