Diamond Patterned Pullover
Garter stitch collar and cuffs complete this openwork diamond patterned pullover. The collar is worked in two parts, each with the fronts. Work the right side and collar first. To work the collar with the left side, cast on the collar stitches.
The yarn over is basic in pointelle patterns. If the yarn over is not placed around the needle in the correct direction, the hole you are trying to create may be eliminated.
Slip stiches, unless otherwise specified, are slipped as if to purl. In this pattern, on the odd (wrong side) rows, the yarn is also brought forward as if to purl. Be sure to check notes on yarn overs and slip stitches.
