- 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.
