How to knit corner of Diamond of the Island lace edging

 

 

I know I told you that I won’t be doing corners for lace borders in my near future (remember cable edging corners?), but “Diamond of the Island” lace edging was staring at me.

You know – “why this white cables and laces got corner, but I can’t” kind of way. I felt guilty.

“Diamond of the Island” lace border pattern was inspired from the sea and sand. This is where the name came from too. It’s like little diamonds are in the sand and waves are curling around them.

Now – the corner. For one corner, you should make at least 5 pattern repeats. I tried with 7 repeats and this is fine too, but 5 is minimum. Otherwise it will start to tear and won’t look nice.

 

Abbreviations:
