This evening I cast on to begin the Diamond Lace Scarf, or the Short Row Lace Shawl designed by Iris Schreier. I am using ArtYarns Cottonspring H15 (Pink Pearl Twist) and H5 (Plum Twist). I purchased both colrways of this yarn online at FabulousYarn.com.

This yarn is a DK weight yarn, and is thinner than what I am used to. It will take some time to get the right tension for working with this yarn.

I am using size 8 Denise Knitting needles.

This pattern is free with the purchase of any ArtYarns yarn. The first part of the pattern may be found at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/f247-short-row-lace-shawl-flat-version
