Behind the Designs, Continuous Crochet: Enchanted Diamonds Crochet Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
UPDATED 1/21/2021: The Enchanted Diamonds Crochet Scarf Pattern features a #2 sport weight yarn that is no longer available. You can easily substitute any of my #2 sport weight yarns for this project:
The interior panel stitch pattern looks complicated but is easy to understand after a repeat or two. I love how the scalloped flower edging is worked and joined as you go within the rows of the shawl. Constructed from the center outward, this piece has symmetrical ends; the narrow edging then matches the long edging as well.
You will need an H/8 (5mm) crochet hook and 3 hanks of Drew Emborsky Gemstones yarn. It is a beautiful handdyed, sport weight wool yarn and it’s on SALE. Check out Drew’s website for more details:
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Drew personally for many years. We have worked together on books, designs, projects and we were even on opposite TV shows at the same time! He is a kind, loyal, talented and very smart man and I am proud to call him my friend. I feel really lucky when I get to choose yarns for my books with the intention of highlighting good people. This is a prime example. I remember when he started his yarn company, and I have enjoyed watching him cultivate it over the years. He has a great eye for color and it wasn’t easy picking just one for this project.
This picture was taken at a trade show in 2012 when he was promoting his The Crochet Dude product line.
