Knit your own Diamond Lace Dress-it-up using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
Accessorize your outfits with this versatile scarf featuring a design variation of trellis faggot lace arranged into diamonds with knitted-to-shape points at each end. Here are some photos to start you on some ideas of the variety of looks you can achieve with the Diamond Lace Dress-it-up Scarf.
Since the scarf is knitted from side-to-side, the colors in variegated yarn will stripe attractively in the lengthwise direction of the scarf.
Allow 550 yards fingering weight yarn for 10" x 70" scarf, or desired length with yardage adjustment. 4½ sts/inch, size US 6 / 4.0 mm needles suggested. Shown above in Heritage Yarns 5/2 Mercerized Cotton, colorway Tapestry. Charted and written stitch instructions.
The darker example pictured in the Additional Images was knitted in Heritage Yarns silk/rayon, color Magic Carpet Ride.
