From ‘Knitting Today’s Classics’: “An oversized diamond cable wraps around a simple centre cable, making an eye-catching design for intermediate knitters. The remainder of the design is worked in a broken rib stitch. Chunky two-by-two ribbing edges this design, which includes a cardigan and pullover for adults and a pullover for children. It is shown in two different textures of bulky yarn – a loosely twisted blend of wool and llama (all of the pullovers) and a brushed mohair (the woman’s cardigan)”
