House of Diamond is a round-yoke colourwork sweater worked seamlessly from the top down. It features a folded twisted rib collar and bottom ribbing, as well as extra long sleeves. German short rows are used to add length to the back of the sweater. As the yoke includes several three-colour rounds and long floats, it could be considered as an intermediate to advanced pattern.

The kit contains the following colourways in the required quantities on Les Garçons's British DK base. The pattern is not included; it can be purchased in the les Garçons shop or on Ravelry.

Kit 1: Louis' Shade, Natural, Remy's Peach
