As light and airy as a bath bubble and as soft and cozy as a kitten, our Colorblock Diamond Wrap is oh-my-goodness nice! Credit for its splendor goes to our wool-mohair-silk Brume, one of very favorite yarns for weightless warmth and glowing beauty.

To create the eponymous “diamond,” you first knit a triangle from point to hypotenuse, then change colors and knit another triangle, decreasing at double the rate of the first triangle’s increases. The result is two triangles, one bigger, one smaller, and the reason is simple: for fun! Wear your Colorblock Diamond Wrap with the smaller triangle on top so the bottom color peeps out or fold it so the points meet up and the shapes play!
