Diamond dust is a ground-level “cloud” composed of crystals of ice. Also called ice crystals, diamond dust generally forms under clear skies. It is most commonly seen in Antarctica, and this type of precipitation may continue for several days without interruption. A massif is a section of the earth’s crust that is marked by faults. When the crust moves, a massif retains its internal structure while being moved as a whole. the term is used to refer to a group of mountains formed in this way. Mount Vinson is the highest peak in Antarctica, at 16,050 feet (4,892 m). the massif is about 750 miles (1,200 km) from the south Pole and is about 13 miles (21 km) long and 8.1 miles (13 km) wide. It was named after Carl Vinson, a u.s. congressman from Georgia. the Vinson Massif was first seen in 1958 and first climbed in 1966. As of February 2010, 1,400 climbers have attempted to reach the top of Mount Vinson. this piece combines classic hex-mesh and leaves, along with stylized ice floats and sea creatures. It is a full circle/hexagon with an opening that wraps around the wearer like a cloak.

ERRATA: page 84 Chart D, the 4th stitch from the left edge (1st stitch after the edge stitches,) there is an extra column of stitches. So on the first row of chart D you will work the final decrease, knit 6 (not 7) and work the edge stitches. Interweave is aware and will be making the correct chart available soon. I will add the link here once they do! Sorry!
