Since it is difficult to ignore the call of the diamond’s simple and elegant shape, the Stream of Diamonds scarf features nothing but diamonds. The exterior zigzag shape was inspired by both Lily’s traditional cotton dishcloth design and Barbara Walker’s 4th Treasury book. The interior lace pattern of interconnecting diamonds is a variation of an old favorite. It was designed to be intricate, yet simple. The sample is knit in 100% bamboo for its lovely drape, sheen, and comfort of knitting (and wearing) year-round.
