Knit with Aabhar – Bordered Diamonds Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description


Bordered Diamonds Stitch Pattern is a cable pattern that creates a beautifully textured fabric. It has embossed diamond-shaped motifs all over with a border that looks like a crochet chain stitch on a background of stockinette stitches. The inside of these diamond motifs is filled with reverse stockinette stitch. Bordered Diamonds Stitch Pattern is a little complex pattern as each row has detailed knitting instructions, unlike simpler patterns where the alternating row is either knit or purl.

Bordered Diamonds Stitch Pattern is an excellent pattern idea for home decor projects as the pattern is quite bold. You can knit pillow or cushion covers, throws, and afghans featuring this pattern. It will also look great on pullovers and cardigans.
