Lots of knitting. Lots. I don't wanna even think about the number of stitches and throws that even one block represents. Well, that makes me curious. The diamonds start with 1 stitch and increase 2 stitches every other row to 55 stitches. That would be 110 rows and I don't wanna search for that formula that adds up 1 + 3 + 3 + 5 + 5 + etc. Boring.
If you haven't read The Mysterious Affair at Styles, get it from the library. It has a very interesting twist and I won't spoil it for you except to say -- again -- it's not the butler.
