Who's ready to shine like a diamond? Meet our first ever women's pattern, the Dia Ladies Sweater and Tunic pattern!
The sewn-in graphical diamond artwork, gives your sweater an edgy and modern look - keep it clean and fresh by using a knit fabric in a single color or go crazy and color-block away! For those intimidated by seam matching all the pieces of the diamond, we've also added a "basic diamond" and a "basic front bodice". Yay for versatility!
The Dia Ladies Sweater & Tunic comes in 4 different lengths: a straight & high low sweater and straight & high low tunic length. Next to that, the pattern comes with long, short and 3/4 sleeves.
Techniques involved include sewing with knits, straight & curved seams, using basting threads (only for the puff sleeves), seam matching and attaching ribbing.
