Mitered Diamond Sweater

Master the art of mitered squares while making this most wonderful modular sweater designed by Melody Johnson. Susan will guide you through the process, one block at a time as your garment grows from 1 magically colored square to many. As each square builds on the last so there is virtually no seaming. You will master the art of picking up stitches and casting on mid -project.

Susan will determine the size of the squares that you need to knit to accomplish the amount of ease you want in your sweater.

A second design option by Melody Johnson  is also available, the Mitered Diamond Sweater with Side Panels.
