This pullover is offered in 2 sleeve lengths - the short sleeve shown here, or a long sleeve version. The center panel is a faux button band, with small buttons which dress up the pretty diamond motif.
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.
21 sts and 26 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Moss Diamonds, using smaller needles
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.
