diamond afghan - need new pattern?
I found an afghan I wanted to knit, but the directions aren't entirely clear to me. I'm assuming I cast on at the middle of the diamond, knit one way, then pick up and knit the other way. That I can do. However, I wanted to have a few diamonds with patterns on them, just to make it more personal as a gift. I have two colours mixed in the cast on row.. I should be able to manage the two colours overall with the lovely videos here, but how do I cast on?? or is there another way to do this, NOT starting in the middle?

.. I'm doing two of each pattern, so I can use one for front and one for back, hiding the mess on the real back of each one.. since the back doesn't matter, could I make a 2 or 3 row thing to pick up off and get around it that way, or am I just making it worse?
