Viridescent Diamond Cardigan
Yardage is for Paisley. Pattern specifies the other two yarns as suitable substitutes.
From ‘Knitting Today’s Classics’: This cropped cardigan with drop shoulders is knit in panels of reflecting triangular twist stitches. The finished look of a twist stitch resembles a closely woven cable, but no cable needle is used. The rounded and shaped collar gives a cosmopolitan finish to the smart-looking cardigan. Rated as advanced knitting, the pattern begins on page 53.* The yarn called for, Classic Elite Paisley, is no longer available.
The Textured pattern is written, not charted.
