About this Pattern
The Ten of Diamonds is a large, squishy and bold shawl, addictive to knit and fun to wear! The shawl is worked in once piece, with the garter stitch side sections and the top of the diamond motif’s all worked together. You will then work the bottom centre section, closing off all the diamonds as you decrease. The shawl is then completed with an i-cord bind off to give it a lovely professional finish.
The shawl is worked using 2 colours alternating every 2 rows and the cables are brought to life by a simple slip stitch technique. Video tutorials are available for working the cables without the use of a cable needle.
