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!
