Fun to create and free knitting stitch featuring small diamond shapes. This is a pretty easy lace stitch that the experienced knitter can get the hang of quite quickly. Would make a lovely pattern for baby items and breezy summer tops made out of cotton. But as always there is no limit to what could be created with it!
