Meet the Diamond Crop Sweater, a new favorite at Knit Collage. This pattern is a mix of an intricate pointelle diamond on the front and a loosely knit rib on the back. Get creative and mix and match yarns from front to back for added fun! The big needle size needed means this sweet sweater will just take a little time to whip up!

The pattern is written for 2 yarn options- 1 knit completely with our cotton Wildflower yarn (sample shown here in color Sierra Redwood) and one knit with a Spun Cloud yarn front (Color Fog shown here -Sister yarn will also work!) and a Wildflower yarn (color Reflection Pool shown here) back. For both versions, it’s easy to make this sweater longer and customize it to your liking, if super cropped isn’t totally your thing. For ever more detail, check out a video I made all about this style here.
