Crochet Pattern | Diamante Pullover

Introducing the Diamante Pullover. This sweater is a cozy sweater featuring a lattice/diamond cabling and ribbed texture. Once again, I've used one of my very favorite yarns from WeCrochet called Andean Treasure. This 100% baby alpaca yarn really elevates the look of almost any knitwear project, and truly makes this sweater extra luxurious.

The Design

This sweater is labeled as an advanced level sweater due to the construction, cabling, and texture. It's very helpful to have made a garment before. The front panel is worked from the inside out and the back panel is worked from side to side. The panels are then seamed together, perpendicular ribbing to the neckline and bottom hem is added, and finally sleeves are attached.


Fit + Sizing

The Diamante Pullover has a roomy (but not oversized), boxy fit, wide crew neck, mid-length, and 3/4 length sleeves. Sizing is based on Craft Yarn Council's standards.


It is designed to have a positive ease of 4.5-6.5". To select your size, measure your bust and find the garment circumference in the chart that matches approximately 4.5-6.5" larger. If you prefer to have more or less ease, select the garment circumference that reflects that number in inches compared to your measured bust in inches.

Yarn Substitutions:

Andean Treasure is labeled as a category 2 sport weight yarn, but in my humble opinion, it is much closer to a category 3 DK weight or light worsted yarn for this project. If planning to substitute a yarn, please keep this in mind. I highly recommend making sure you make a gauge swatch. Small differences in gauge can lead to big differences in project outcome. For more on gauge, you can read this blog.

  • WeCrochet Brava (sport) | This is an economy acrylic yarn that is actually quite soft and drape-y (especially after steaming or blocking/washing). It's easy to care for and comes in a lot of colors, including a fair number of dusty shades and earthy colors. If you're looking for an economy yarn substitute, I would probably recommend this one.

  • Lion Brand Coboo DK | This cotton bamboo blend is a really drape-y, cool-on-the-skin yarn, that makes a great, really wearable and comfy sweater.

  • We Are Knitters The Baby Wool | This seems quite similar to Andean Treasure, if you'd like a substitute option that is very close to what I used, this would be a great option.*

  • Originally Lovely Pura | This is a 100% superfine merino wool yarn, and is a new yarn line created by a fellow maker that just hit the market.
