Carat, cut, clarity, and colour are the 4Cs of choosing a diamond, and this sweater’s got it all going on. Elegant cables mimic the cut of a Marquise diamond as they cascade down the front of this fitted, top-down pullover. Clear directions are included for adding optional glass bead for some extra brilliance. Work it up in your favorite colour, and you’ll be shining like the gem that you are! If diamonds are a girls best friend, then Marquise Cut is your BFF in sweater form :-).

The tech edited and test knit pattern is fully written with a schematic. The pattern repeat is both written and charted. Construction: top down with side seams. The optional set in sleeves are top down as well.
