Diamond - Edged Sweater

Whether diamonds are related to a jubilee or being a best friend, they certainly make for great accents along the lower edge of Amy Gunderson's Diamond-Edged Sweater in Poems Silk Solids. The diamond-shape lace edging is knitted separately and the stitches for the body and sleeves picked up.

Astrakhan Sweater

KNITTED LACE has never looked so monumental! This dramatic top from the design team at Schachenmayr Select uses a lace and bobble pattern worked in a super-chunky yarn on colossal 25mm needles. The sweater is knitted in three main pieces; the right and left fronts are partly seamed together, and a collar is sewn onto the finished garment. The mohair content of the Alegretto yarn adds a pleasing fluffiness to those huge stitches - neon shades are also available, if you feel this design is not bold enough!
