DIAMOND FIZZ

The third pattern from the Boos for Beginners Collection, Diamond Fizz take the lace pattern from Spritzer and lets it evolve into something new and more intricate.  The patterning is offset and repeated to create a shawl with either an over-all lace pattern or a stocking stitch body with a large lace border and lacy edge.  




For knitters with more experience this pattern is still uncomplicated but not boring. Perfect for holiday or television knitting and the ideal pattern to move on to after completing their first lace project!  Knit in two skeins of Dye for Yarn SilkCash yarn (310/50g), this shawl pattern is suitable for heavy lace, lace and fingering weight yarns.


You will also need: Stitch Markers (one that is different to mark the beginning of your rows), Needle (for weaving in ends), Blocking Pins and Mats,  approximately 820 beads when working Chart Two six times and 900 beads to work the all-over lace version.  and a 1mm cro-tat hook to apply your beads (or dental floss, 0.6mm crochet hook, fleegle beader).

There will be a KAL in January for this pattern in the Boo Group on Ravelry - do join us we would love to have you!

This pattern is charted and has full written instructions and is available, along with my other patterns, on Ravelry.
