How to knit the diamond nut stitch

The stitch we will be learning today is the diamond nut stitch. Slightly Perforated and characterised by a geometric motif made more delicate with many soft nuts. This stitch could be ideal for a knitted dress to be worn in the springtime or an a cooler summer's evening. The yarn chosen for this stitch is our exquisite Hokusai seen here in Cyclamen. On the shop you will also find numerous equally magnificent colours.

Let's start.
