Where the diamonds are, is the stitch plain single Brussels, or twisted buttonhole?

Well, it was not a day I was planning to get out my 30x Tasco mini-microscope, but I have. And the prize goes to Lorelei, because the dense part (above the missing cordonnet) is single corded brussels, with a twisted brussels where the holes are. The adjacent part with the diaper pattern is corded twisted Brussels. So the stitches in the adjacent area are actually longer than the ones above (with the exception of where the lines of holes appear). Vaguely a memory is coming back to me from my own piece, that when you make the different stitches it throws the entire geometry off, such that certain forms only work with certain stitches. In other words, I wonder if you could get the squae diamond shape in a single brussels, or whether it wouldn't look very narrow and flat like a long narrow diamond.

Devon: are the dense parts corded Brussels, with the open work lines twisted Brussels? Those stitches look too tall for corded plain Brussels. I can't quite tell.
