Eckstein combines a textured square pattern and reverse stockinette stitch. The back is longer than the front. Slits at body and sleeve hems create a casual tuniclike sweater. The comfy body, drop shoulders and tight sleeves make it wearable all year long.

This sweater is part of the series Faded Spades. Its name derives from the German word for diamonds. It is the first design in the series, featuring simple geometrical forms.
