how to knit diamond of the island lace edging

 

I worked on a new knitted border last week. Naturally, it is lacy and romantic. There’s no other way.

I am so proud to introduce you knitted lace edging called “Diamond of the Island”. With very romantic name, of course.

Why this name? It seemed like there are little diamonds in the sand and waves are coming in. Or maybe it is just my imagination in full speed 🙂 You decide.

 

 

Are you up for adventure in knitting?

 

Here is a chart:

Now, if you’re working with the project that needs a corner, then look at this post on how to work corners for “Diamond of the Island” knit border.

sl 1st st = slip first stitch knit wise;
k = knit
p = purl
YO = yarn over (by the way – I have a tutorial on how to make yarn over twice / YO, YO)
k2tog = knit 2 together
ssk = slip, slip, knit together
p2tog = purl 2 together
