bigger diamond pattern swan

Hey people! If you want to make a bigger diamond pattern swan, here are some written instructions sent in by spelcika1990 on Youtube:

(If you haven't seed the video for the normal sized diamond pattern swan, watch it here:

 spelcika1990's instructions:
Normal sized swan & Bigger swan

770 white pieces (+48 for the neck)
494 colored pieces (+23 for the neck)
1 black

1. Start with 9 white 'mountains' (4,3,2,1) and 9 diamonds.  (as shown in the normal sized swan vid linked above)
2. Outline the diamonds 3 times
3. Add another row of diamonds
4. Outline the diamonds 1 time
5. Add another row of diamonds

6. 2 white outlines on 2 diamonds
7. between 2 outlines (between the mountains) make a diamond
8. Around the diamond make 1 white outline
9. Add color outline
10. And add another white outline until the last colored piece (leave it for the neck)
11. Fill out the spaces between the diamonds with white

TAIL (inverted)
12. On top of the last diamond color piece put 2 color pieces
13. Continue with 1 white, 1 color, 4 white, 1 color, 4 white, 1 color, 4 white, 1 color, 4 white, 1 color, 4 white, 1 color, 1 white, 2 color pieces
14. At 4 white pieces build up mountains - you end up with 5 mountains
15. Between mountain spaces add diamonds - you end up with 4 diamonds
16. Make 2 outlines around all 4 diamonds
17. Between mountain spaces add 3 diamonds
18. Outline 3 diamonds twice
19. Between mountiain spaces add 2 diamonds
20. Outline 2 diamonds twice
21. Now you can make the last diamond and make 1 outline around that diamond
21. Now outline the whole tail with color pieces
22. Next outline is white
23. Finish with 2 color outlines around the whole tail.

I'm sure I don't need to have to explain you, it's the same, I used 48 white pieces and 23 colored pieces.

I added another black piece to make it realistic and another orange at the end.
