I think the wool weight and type is important. I also got a less than "diamond" pattern. But in certain light it looked better. I also found that when the glove was on a hand the stitches pulled and looked more like moss st :(. Saw somewhere that it has to be knit tightly so I'm trying that too. Next project for this I will try thicker / coarser wool. The wool I'm using now is 8ply and quite "soft" (maybe that's the twist people were mentioning?). I think equivalent wool should have been 10ply. It's hard to do all conversions etc! I checked my gauge and it was right so I forged ahead. Although now that I think of it my rows per inch were a bit off gauge.
