summer diamonds
Pattern:  Diamond Patch Sweater, by Jill Vosburg

  Green Mountain Spinnery's "Sylvan Spirit" (900yds)
Method:  Knitting
Completed:  September 4, 2009.

This was a modular knit -- make all the (mitred) diamonds for the bottom row, and then pick up stitches along 1 side of 2 diamonds to make next row up, hooking them all together.  Interesting fixes for the neckline (and filling in the back of the neck).  I did an odd number of rows, which goes against the recommendation (one fewer row, and it would have been too short; one more would have been too long on me).

Final dimensions:  19" wide, 20.5" shoulder to bottom point (17" upper cut of last row).

Back -- note the "fill in" half diamond in the back neckline
