18. Double Diamond

"Double Diamond" is a variation of a previous pattern, 6. Torchon Edge. In this version
  • there is only one knit stitch instead of two after the yarn over at the end of each right side row
  • the yarn overs are purled on the next row
  • and, as the name suggests, the top of the solid diamonds are framed with two rows of eyelets instead of one
The garter stitch edging begins with a stitch count of 9, increases one stitch every right side row to 12, and then steadily decreases to the original number in the course of the 12-row repeat.

Another great lace trim pattern. This one looks especially fun to knit.

I think I like this one better than the plain diamond.

I am just getting into 18th century costume sewing, and will be sure to revisit your site often for add ons to the "delicates" department! Please keep blogging!
