“Adamas” in Greek means indomitable or untamable. This name was given to diamonds because of their ability to scratch anything, while not being scratched themselves. The diamond motif in this shawl was adapted from the pattern for a bread cloth in Sophia Caulfeild’s Dictionary of Needlework, first published in 1882.
I used Jagger Spun’s Zephyr in Ice Blue, a beautiful blend of Merino and Tussah silk.
The pattern is Adamas Shawl by Miriam L. Felton.
