This Moss and Diamond stitch pattern is a perfect complement to a deep v-neck. The vee follows the lines of the diamonds and the neckline grows naturally out of them, and only requires very minimal finishing at the back neck. The sleeves pick up the Moss stitch in the diamond pattern without distracting from the beauty of the diamonds. This pattern is given in a shorter length if you'd prefer.
The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 4.5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.

At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
