Diamonds are a Boy’s Best Friend

Knit/purl diamonds swatch

Today’s knitting stitch pattern is another knit and purl design with a masculine feel to it that I have dubbed “Diamond Stitch“. A completely reversible stitch, diamond stitch can be knit with a range of yarns for different effects. A smooth, crepe (or cabled) yarn will produce very distinct diamonds. Handspun 2 ply, or even a handspun novelty yarn would produce a softer look. A super light mohair on larger than normal needles would create quite an ethereal fabric.

Try giving¬†Diamond Stitch¬†(and any of the other knit/purl stitches I’ve posted so far), a try with a range of yarns and see what type of fabrics you can create. You might be surprised!
