Follow these steps to crochet a diamond cardigan:
Begin by crocheting the back panel. Chain the desired length and work in double crochet (DC) until you reach the desired height of the back panel.
Crochet the front panels by chaining the same length as the back panel, but divide it in half. Work in DC until the desired height.
To make the diamond pattern, begin by crocheting the first row of diamond shapes on one front panel. Chain three and skip two stitches, then make a DC in the next stitch. Chain two, skip two stitches, then make another DC in the next stitch. Continue this pattern until the end of the row.
Crochet the second row by making a DC in the chain-two space of the previous row, then chain two and make another DC in the next chain-two space. Continue this pattern until the end of the row.
Continue crocheting the diamond pattern until you reach the desired length of the front panels.
Join the front and back panels at the shoulders using slip stitches.
Crochet the sleeves by chaining the desired length and working in DC until the desired width of the sleeve. Sew the sleeves to the body of the cardigan using a tapestry needle.
Add buttons or any other embellishments you desire.
