Glaciers are so beautiful and if you get the chance to go inside one, it really is very blue and sparkly. This stitch forms little sparkly diamonds and the blue yarn adds to the glacier feeling.
This is an easy/intermediate pattern, as you will need to know cast/bind on, knit, purl, and knit or purl 2 or 3 together. The diamond pattern consists of knit and purl stitches only and is easily remembered.
This super soft yarn knits up quickly and is great for yourself, or friends and family. Just right for those icy, but sunny days.
Just right for that winter walk!
Knitted on 2 needles and sewn up the back.
