From Knitting for Baby:  This simplified, modern interpretation of a traditional Scandinavian sweater style is knitted in one piece to the armholes, then divided at the armholes into the fronts and back.  The body of the sweater is worked in a repeating diamond motif.  The sleeves are worked with a small dot (often called lice) motif.
