I didn't have any diamond shaped blocks to use in the photo, like I did in the photo with the square/triangular blocks in the squares/triangles cloth pictures. Unlike the Squares Cloth, which took me 4 tries to get it the way I wanted it, this Diamonds Cloth only took me 3 tries.

This is part of my series of Geometric Lace Cloths...

Notes:

B3 = 3 stitch border of your choice (I used K3 for my border in the cloth above)

K2TOG
= knit 2 stitches together

YO = yarn over

Instructions in parentheses followed by x2, x3, or k4 means you do what is in the parentheses the number of times indicated after "x". For example, (K2Tog, YO)x2 means you would do K2Tog, YO, K2Tog, YO.
