Thoughts on Points of Diamonds

ScannedImageI usually like to find ways to avoid straight lines. I enjoy curves and blending of colors. That is one of the reasons I came to design Points of Diamond Beret, available in the Winter 2013 issue of Crochet! Magazine.

The colors of the yarn (Noro Silk Garden) lent itself so well to the blending of colors. The art has such a diverse array of colors in one skein that it looks like you were painting with a brush, it is really fun.

This Beret came into being, once again, from my daughter. She always enjoys asking me to create new things for her (even if she only wears them once and puts them aside). She wanted a circular hat, and I loved the thought of placing a straight line design within the circle, hence the diamond points were introduced.

Once I had it designed for a child, I loved it enough that I wanted one too, so it grew into an adult size as well. I hope you enjoy the ways the colors come together and the texture that the stitches create as much as I do.
