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.
