Auber

Can you believe that five songs have been sung? I can't, and I'm the one making them come to life! Today, I have for you the fifth song - Auber. I've been wanting to do something with a diamond motif ever since I started this project, and I finally got the diamonds in tune. auber-beauty

The shawlette is worked from the bottom up from a cast-on of only 3 stitches. The garter-diamond border is worked at the same time as the body of the shawl. Named after the French composer Daniel Auber and his Les diamants de la couronne, for the beautiful diamond motifs in the pattern.

The diamonds in the center panel are filled in with what I call little Estonian stars. Just a lovely bit of texture that shows off the subtle semi-sold shading of the gorgeous Ever After yarn.

And the shawlette is finished along the top with a sweet applied border - no super long row to bind off here!
