Pattern Release: Purplish Diamond Sweater

by Lena Fedotova (ravliki on Ravelry)

Purplish Diamond Sweater pattern, originally published in Crochet Now magazine Issue 11, is now available in Lena's store on Ravelry as an individual pattern download!


The pattern has been tweaked a little, updated, and now uses U.S. crochet terminology. It also includes more charts and helpful pictures.


Purplish Diamond sweater is worked seamlessly top down in the round with the right side always facing up.

The diamond stitch pattern uses only two of the most basic crochet stitches: double crochet and chains.

Available sizes: S (M, L, 1X, 2X) designed to fit with 2.4” / 6 cm positive ease. The width is 18⅞ (20½, 22, 23⅝, 25¼ )'' / 48 (52, 56, 60, 64) cm. 

The sweater works up fast thanks to DK weight WYS Bluefaced Leicester (100% wool, 122 yards (112 m) per 50 g ball) and a hook US G (4 mm).


The blank layout templates of the yoke can be used as your sketchpad: choose your beloved colors and colorize them to visualize your own unique sweater before you start it!


Happy crocheting!
