Raised Diamonds Stitch is an elegant and simple knitting pattern with looped yarn creating diamond-shaped motifs all over the knitted fabric. The pattern repeats every 10 rows, and 7 of those are basic knits and purls, making it a beginner-friendly knitting stitch that can work up quickly.
It is a textured, non-reversible knitting pattern that will work well with projects such as pullovers or large fabric projects like afghans.
