Diamonds and kangaroos are a girl’s best friend

A lot of people already know the Dia Sweater by Misusu. It is a sweater with a great diamond in the middle of the sweater. Now it has been updated! In addition to the children sizes there is also a women’s version of the sweater. Also the sizes have been extended (80-164 which is 9-12M – 13-14Y) and a tunic version has been added. The pattern has lots of options. You can make a regular sweater, high low sweater, regular tunic and high low tunic.

During testing I made two different versions for our middle girl. First I made the tunic (or dress version in the case of small girl) because I just love sewing dresses. I used different colours to highlight the different pattern pieces. For the diamond I used glitter sweat, which of course is very much appreciated by our girl. I love how the different pattern pieces are great for colour blocking. However, if you are not so much into colour blocking have a look at my tunic, where I did not go bold on colour blocking.

For the second version I made the high low sweater. There were very creative ideas in the tester group and one of the testers made a version with an animal face. This got me inspired and I wanted to try something similar. I added an extra element of actual ears! I just cut two animal ears and folded them and added them when sewing the last front pattern piece.

At first I was aiming for a giraffe, however my husband said it looked more like a kangaroo. So I went with a kangaroo in the end and didn’t add the spots of the giraffe. Our girl of course doesn’t care which animal it is, she just loves the sweater with the ears!
Fabric: All fabric is sweat fabric, which either comes from Italy or from Micha’s Stoffecke. The glitter sweat was a leftover from this jacket. The giraffe is made of wool fabric from a dress for myself that did not make it to my blog yet. I bought the wool fabric at Hoofs.


Fabric in 2018: this week 0 in – 8 out (2018: bought 59 – used 86 fabric – used 4 gifted fabric – used 22 scrap pieces of fabric) – in total 59 in 112 out
