Yarn: Berroco Lustra, 50% Wool/50% Tencel aran weight yarn in Aubergine  

Needles: 4 mm / US 6

Gauge: 5.25 sts and 7.5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Diamond Brocade

Source: BW1, p. 30.

Comments: This is a pretty simply knit/purl combination, which gives a nice effect.  It would be interesting (I think, anyway) to do one row of these diamonds as an accent along the waist-line (or empire waist-line) of a little girls coat.  It would need the right yarn and garment shape though, otherwise it might get a little lost in the overall piece.
