The Twisted Diamond Earwarmer pattern was inspired by the Barfi Stitch . The design has clean lines that draw the eye. It is visually interesting without being too ornamental. The selvedge stitch combined with the ribbing makes a beautiful edge. The diamond pattern down the center is gorgeous. This pattern would be great for men or women!
I must admit, this pattern took me HOURS to figure out. I started and restarted it so many times I can't even tell you. It was difficult because I was going off of a video that repeated the pattern instead of having it just once. I mostly had to just look at it and figure out the pattern. I must say excel spreadsheets were also super helpful. They were the grid I needed and not mention coloring in the cells. Even when I thought I had finally figured out the pattern, it still wasn't quite right. Shoutout to excel for allowing me to make easy adjustments to the pattern so I could get it right.
This pattern was so worth the pain, though. It's a simple design yet it's also eye-catching. In a neutral color, it goes with everything. It's great for men or women.
This pattern is also great to use up some of that left-over project yarn. You need a little bit more than scraps but definitely not a full skein. Even less than a half skein of yarn would be enough.
