Pickin' it up

The VK Spring/Summer 2004 Diamond Pullover is now a WIP, and it's not as difficult as I thought it'd be. One thing for sure, I'm going to be really good at picking up stitches when this is finished.

If you're working on this sweater, here are a few corrections and tips that are not in the VK magazine or on the VK web site:

  • Row 1 of the Diamond Pattern should read, "Row 1 (WS)", not (RS).

  • Slip all stitches purlwise unless otherwise instructed.

  • When picking up stitches for the next diamond, you should pick up and knit the stitches. Row 1 of the diamonds and 1/2 diamonds begins on the wrong side.

  • When picking up stitches for the next diamond, stitch 8 should be the top center stitch of the diamond below.

  • At the end of a purl row, take the yarn to the back of the work before slipping the last stitch.
3 WIP with the sock-along starting on Sunday. Yikes.


  • It looks lovely so far. Can't wait to see progress!
