Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2009: “The creative options are certainly endless when you integrate a quartet of fabulously textured yarns into one design, as Taylor does with her long-sleeved open cardi. Using a paintbox of Mondial/Trendsetter Yarns - including ‘Magia,” ‘Sunshine,’ ‘Zucca’ and ‘Rapunzel’ - she merges various stitch patterns and techniques into a touchable, cohesive whole.”
