Openwork Diamond Scarf


(15 Votes)


The needles are thin and the yarn is even smaller, but keeping up with the detailed stitch work pays off with the Openwork Diamond Scarf. An intricate diamond style design runs down the length of this free scarf pattern, making it an elegant neck accessory you'll cherish for years. Due to the more complicated stitches, the Open Diamond Scarf is a good project for the intermediate knitter. Size two needles and mercerized cotton thread are used to create this treasure. Happy knitting!

Can anyone tell me the approx yardage needed for this scarf. Thank you

The pattern calls for aunt Lydia's crochet thread and that comes in 300 yd. skeins for the colours, there is more yardage if you go white or a natural colour.

Oh, yay...I have the original you published a while back, but have trouble reading the chart (old eyes) so I've been watching, hoping you'd put a clearer chart out and here it is!! I'm a happy knitter.

Oh, yeah, the added written instructions are great, too. Thanks!!!

Dwamma - you bet! :) I'm happy to help! SO many had been asking for a written pattern as well so I bit the bullet. I'm glad the updates are helpful! :) Happy knitting! Dawn

Hi All, The post has been updated with written instructions and a charted pattern. Enjoy! Best, Dawn

I too would need a hand written pattern. Is it possible? I would be willing to poay any costs. Thank you, Jean,.

Hi Jean! The written pattern has been added to the post. Enjoy!

Love the scarf - plan to make several for special friends. Live in cold climate in the winter and would like to use a yarn maybe other than cotton - has anyone used the pattern with large needles and a heavier yarn such as sport yarn. Open to any and all suggestions.

It is beautiful. Please can I have the written pattern. I am new at knitting and would love to make this scarf. Regards Monika.

Hi there - the written pattern has been added to the post - enjoy!

I really like the scarf. Please give written text instructions. I don't do charts! Thanks in advance.

Hi there - written pattern has been added - cheers!

I,too, love this scarf and would like a copy of the pattern in a form that is user-friendly. I am not experienced enough to try it as it is written. Also, I have not knitted with charts at all, so a written pattern would be greatly appreciated. Lovely scarf! Thanks.

Hi Shirl - written pattern has been added - happy knitting!

Finally!!! A scarf I am totally in love with, and I can make NO SENSE whatsoever of the hand-written chart. ????????
