The Diamond Tweed Stitch, when worked in rows, begins with a multiple of 2, plus 1. In other words, any odd number of stitches. The only tricky part is the ends of the rows – in one row you’ll have a dc on each end, while on the next you’ll begin and end with a dc2tog worked in the first/last 2 sts.
When working it in the round, you’d only need a multiple of 2 – or any even number of stitches. Of course, in the round there are no “ends”, so you can just keep making dc2togs all the way around. The last dc2tog will have it’s second “leg” in the same st as the first leg of the first dc2tog of that round. Ch 1, join, and start the next row with a ch-2 for the first half of the dc2tog to start the next round.
This stitch would make a lovely blanket – just chain an odd number of stitches in whatever length you want. Or you could use it to make a tote bag – just crochet a circle, and then work the Diamond Tweed Stitch evenly around until you have the bag height you want, and add some handles. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and use it to inspire your own projects!
