Here we have a combination of old and new patterns. The post starts off with a version of what I call companion squares—when combined, the squares form a continuous pattern. Sometimes companion squares will form a pattern from top to bottom and/or side to side—“Diamond Back” is more a top to bottom type.

Diamonds show up in a lot of my pin loom pattern weaves and I have a hard time not calling them all “Diamond Something.” As the pattern weave library grows, you’ll see a lot of squares featuring diamonds with creative names like “Double Vision.”

      Thanks Deborah! I just Googled Diamondback (the snake) and have decided I may need to update this pattern and change the colors a bit. Maybe it could look even cooler.
