Have you ever fallen in love with a stitch?  I have and I’ve fallen hard!  I first used the Diamond Lace Stitch in the Diamond Lace Blanket after finding a graph for it on Pinterest made by Tejiendo Peru. (If you’d like to see the graph, the easiest way is to search “diamond lace stitch” on Pinterest.

When I finished that blanket, I knew I wanted to use the stitch again (and maybe again and again) in more designs.  It is fun and simple and it makes such a gorgeous pattern that looks amazing blocked or unblocked. It is made up almost entirely of chains and single crochets, with a double crochet thrown in there every so often.

I do have a confession, while I absolutely love the Lion Brand Mandala Warlock colorway, I did not love the lightest color of the group so………….I cut it out! I almost feel wrong saying that. I felt wrong doing it, but it was so right! The color, while beautiful, just didn’t flow.

Three cakes of Mandala in Warlock were used, but it wasn’t 3 full cakes since I cut out an entire color from each cake. Also, the third cake was wound quite differently than the other two so I ended up rolling half of it into a ball, cutting, and working through that ball first to maintain the same striping pattern.

 

The wrap turned out even fancier and even more beautiful than I imagined! My plan was to make something I could wrap myself in around the house as the evenings get cooler, but it is so lovely I think I will end up wearing it out. It also works as a great, large scarf.  No matter how I end up using it, I am excited that it will look nice draped on the side of my couch when not in use!

  1. I’m confused about the foundation row. Where it says chain 5, does that mean you add 5 chains to the 92 you’ve already chained, for a total of 97?

  2. Hi, Jesse, did you cut the yarn and start each new color at the beginning of a row? In the pictures the rows look so perfect. It’s lovely!

  3. Having problem with row 3. Is there is there something missing please help several of us have looked at this and cannot figure it out

        • That’s awesome you have friends teaching you! I’m going to type out the beginning instructions in a bit different wording to see if that helps. So after you chain 1 you are going to do 2 single crochets, one in the single crochet in the row below and one right next to that in the beginning of the chain 3 space. Then chain 3. Skip 1 single crochet and do 3 single crochets in the next 3 single crochets. Chain 3 and skip another sc (you are doing 3 scs in the center 3 stitches of the 5 scs below.) let me know if that helps! I hope it doesn’t confuse things more. If you are a visual learner there is a great graph of the stitch that can be found on Pinterest: search “diamond lace stitch”

  4. Hi Jess, thank you for the pattern, its beautiful!! For those of use unfamiliar with mandala-cakes, could you please estimate the yardage for this project?

    • Hi Emmy! The 3 Mandala cakes would equal about 1770 yds but I did cut out an entire color from each cake so the total yardage would be less but not much less. Hope that helps!

  5. My daughter sent this lovely design to me – problem is – I knit… anyone know how to duplicate the design using 2 needles? I am such a crochet novice; my attempt was not even close 😏. Thx

    • Hi Monti! If you are on Ravelry, you can save it on there. Just search “wrap me in Diamonds”. You can also save it on Pinterest for later. If you aren’t on either of those sites, book marking it in your browser allows you to save it. Each browser is a little different on how to bookmark. Let me know if this helps!
