PATTERN 25: DIAMONDS

Hello! I just got back home, after a very boring day to renew my driver’s license (yawn!). It’s still cloudy and rainy here and I don’t think I’ll have enough good light later to take photos of the finished square.

So… Can we knit this one together?

I’m sharing here the pattern and some photos of my WIP (I’ll change them once I take photos of the finished block 🙂 )

The new pattern (block 25) is called DIAMONDS, and I think it looks very good from both sides. This is how it looks from the back:

I’ll be making another one with the reverse stocking st backgroud to add to my squares pile. If you’re a beginner and don’t know how to reverse the pattern, don’t worry! I’ll share it in the next few days.

For the time being, I’ll get back to knit my diamonds!

PS: this block is a bit difficult, with 20 different rows. I’m sharing also a downloadable file with the control table I always make for my Patreon supporters. You can use the control table to check your progress through the pattern repeats. And those intructions include the border stitches (k4).

If you want to add this block to your Ravelry library, click here.

Remember that, in case you need more patterns to add to this project, I adapted all patterns from my “12 Blocks for Xmas” blanket to the same number of stitches and rows than the “52 Square Pickup” ones. You can find them HERE.

You just find this MKAL?

Don’t worry, you can start now! Look for more info in the following page: 52-SQUARE PICKUP: An all year round KAL”.

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CO: cast on
  • RS: right side
  • WS: wrong side
  • st: stitch
  • k: knit
  • p: purl

INSTRUCTIONS

– CO 43 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.

I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.

– With US 6 (4 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.

Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.

– Continue working as follows:

4 garter sts, DIAMONDS pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts​ until you have a total length of 8’’ (20.5 cm).

I knitted 2 times the DIAMONDS pattern complete + rows 1) to 15) again.

– Knit 4 rows.

– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
