There must be some directions in the pattern for the placement of the diamonds and rays (losanges et ray) patterns in the actual waistcoat.

For the swatch, I'd knit the rays patterns over about 35 sts to see if you can get 29sts to 4". You could just knit the 3 extra sts on each side in stockinette and measure over the center 29. Then I'd try the diamond pattern on the same size needles with some extra edge sts to see if it's similar to the gauge for the rays, 29 sts to 4".
