Photo of a periwinkle knitted fabric with a diamond pattern followed by a text area that says "Learn how to knit Fancy Lozenge Pattern, learnknittingonline.com" and a back side photo of a periwinkle knitted fabric with a diamond pattern belowThe Fancy Lozenge Pattern creates a beautiful diamond pattern.

In fact, the flattened diamonds have an interesting look created by the alternating diagonals.

Even though this is not really a reversible pattern, the wrong side is interesting enough to be “on show”.

As the back side of the pattern is so attractive, this stitch pattern would be great for scarves and baby blankets.

Conversely, it also lends itself to being used in afghan strips, as well as sweaters.

 

This free knit stitch pattern is ideal for Level 3 - Easy Level Knitters
