I stopped decreasing at 9 sts instead of 7 for the large diamond; the large diamonds are the center section of the scarf that goes round the neck needs to be broad to keep warm.

I started with 5 small diamonds, then knit 6 large diamonds, then 5 small diamonds. However, you can increase the number of small or large diamonds according to the length you desire or change the order.
