#27 Hooded Cardigan
Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2007: “There are thirty-five years to go until VK reaches its diamond anniversary, but that doesnt mean we can’t celebrate now with Missoni’s Diamond Sweater, first shown on the Fall 1991 cover. It’s worked in a diagonal block pattern with two yarns from Filatura Di Crosa/Tahki.Stacy Charles: the solid ‘Zara’ and the speckled ‘Carousel.’ A striped button band, hemline and cuffs balance the geometric punch of this cushy creation.”
