Free Patterns: Diadem Edition

Have you had the pleasure of knitting or crocheting with Diadem yet? This dreamy yarn is a delectable blend of baby alpaca and mulberry silk – and if that wasn’t enough to get your attention, the lusciously saturated colors will most definitely have you dreaming of silky soft accessories. No wonder a skein of two of this splurge-worthy yarn has found its way into my yarn stash!

If you’re in a similar situation and have 1-2 skeins of Diadem just waiting to be transformed into something incredible, we’ve got 4 stunning and delightfully FREE patterns for you! First up is the Simple Shells Crocheted Cowl from designer Beth Major.

Are you craving a little burst of color? This lovely infinity scarf bundles a pop of color and double seed stitch in between rows of garter stitch. Even better? This cowl can be worn loosely around your neck, draped around your shoulders or double it up for a warm and close-fitting cowl.

The Elegant Frills Wristlets from designer Carla Pera are sure to add drama to any outfit.

These lacy wristlets are knit as rectangles with one flared end while a garter stitch border with eyelets allows the mitts to be threaded and tied up with a lovely ribbon.
