The sample was knit at a relaxed gauge and the texture pattern is very subtle in the variegated yarn. For a more defined texture pattern choose yarns that result in a denser fabric and still meet gauge.

The cardigan shown does not have closer; instructions for including buttonholes on the neck/front band are included in the finishing.
