The Defined Diamonds Stitch :: Knitting Stitch

Stitch Description

The Defined Diamonds stitch is a beautiful allover texture pattern. Using a unique cabling technique, long raised stripes form a network of interlocking lattice. What’s left in-between are diamond pockets, giving the fabric a 3D effect, and a bold geometric pattern. This is a great stitch that can be used in large projects like blankets or scarves, or adapted into a hat.
