Diamond Panel - Easy & Pretty Lace Stitch Knitting Pattern

I am picturing this diamond panel on a place mat of my dinning room table or perhaps on a table runner. This would be a perfect pattern for such projects, I think.

When I was working on this panel last night while watching American Idol. I thought I might have mess up my stitches, but luckily I didn’t. Knitting lace patterns require a lot of concentration. One mistake will ruin the rest. I have 2 toddlers running around the house and always need my attention. So, knitting lace isn’t a thing for me when the girls are around. I have to wait until they go to bed so that I can completely concentrate on my pattern.

Diamond panel is another types of lace knit which is easy and fun to knit.  It only has 8 rows to follow. Moreover, every row on the wrong side of this pattern is knitted in the same way. This is why I handpicked this specific pattern for beginning knitter. Fun, easy and pretty knitting stitches are something that I look for in order to help beginning knitters better learn and develop their knitting skills.

So have fun and keep practicing. Don’t forget to send us a picture of your project!
