Meet the new and updated Dia Sweater and Tunic pattern - now any boy or girl can rock this diamond!

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" to the updated pattern. This makes the Dia sweater the most versatile Misusu pattern yet!  

Next to these updates, we've added 4 different lengths: a straight & high low sweater and straight & high low tunic length. Both normal and puff sleeves come in a long and short sleeved option.

Techniques involved include sewing with knits, straight & curved seams, using basting threads (only for the puff sleeves), seam matching and attaching ribbing.
