As soon as I opened my package of City Tweed DK yarn from KnitPicks, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. This soft yarn was begging to be made into an ultra-wide shawl, with just enough ventilation to allow me to breathe but not become too chilly. This meant it was time to try my hand at designing something with the filet crochet technique.

You might be surprised to find out that while I do possess a talent for crochet designing, I can't draw for crap. Like, not at all! But I do enjoy nonogram puzzles and have a nonogram game on my tablet that also allows you to create your own puzzle. I have utilized that app to map out how we would arrange our furniture when we moved to a new place, and now I have also discovered its handiness when trying to plan out a complex design for a crochet pattern! I spent about 2 hours trying to configure the design. At first, I wanted to do a leaf motif, but remember- I can't draw for crap. Even with little pixels, my "leaves" looked like weird trees and I finally gave up and decided to just draw diamonds.

I'm really glad it went this way, because now that my shawl is finished, I can't imagine it looking better with any other design. To top it off, this pattern named itself which as you know is always a plus for me when I don't have to spend weeks trying to name my latest pattern!

My testers were amazing as always, and I just LOVE the different colorways they chose to make their Diamond Drape Shawls in. Check out a couple of the highlights:
