Diamond Stole

pdf logo PDF Pattern

  • The Diamond Stole is the perfect stole for summer evenings to keep ones shoulders warm when wearing lightweight summer clothes but is equally at home in the colder weather wrapped around the neck keeping the wearer snug. It is rectangular in shape and over 2 metres (over 86 inches) in length and can be worn in a myriad of ways - draped over the shoulders or wrapped around the body,  even as a scarf around the neck.

    The inspiration for this beautiful stole can be found in an early 1950s needlecraft book which contained a design for a table mat including this beautiful diamond lace pattern. The lace pattern on the Diamond Stole includes small diamonds, half diamonds and a large central diamond in each pattern repeat and looks very different depending on whether it is viewed draped vertically or horizontally across the shoulders. It is a fascinating knit

    The stole is knitted in Bluem Sport, 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool which is extremely soft and has lots of drape – perfect for this elegant stole designed to be wrapped loosely around the neck and shoulders. This luxurious yarn is hand-dyed in-house by Susan and her team, and is shown here in Muscus, a luminous, tonal leaf-green. The stole takes 3 100g skeins or approximately 800m (870yds) of yarn and is knitted throughout on a 3.25mm (US 3) needle.

    A yarn kit is available to accompany this pattern. If you prefer a printed pattern you can also purchase a yarn kit which includes a full colour printed pattern booklet. Click on the link at the top of the page to find out more.

    The pattern contains written instructions plus a chart for the lace panel as well as a clear schematic diagram.
