Description: Pretty cushions and throws in three styles.
For the herringbone and basketweave designs, the pattern relies on the specific shading nature of the yarn, but for the triangles and diamond effect you are given advice on how to get round the shading to produce the effect and I would be inclined just to choose colours in a chunky tweed yarn which does not change shade.

Description: They have used Jean Shrimpton to model this rather plain V-neck cardigan; she did appear in Patons Stitchcraft magazines in the early sixties, and it's easy to see how she soon became the world's most highly paid model - so strikingly lovely. All of the the impact of this design is achieved through the tweedy yarn. Bracken Tweed was an exceedingly nice yarn - you need to substitute something like Rowan Felted Tweed - but check your tension - as you can see, Bracken was a fairly dense DK whereas Rowan's is equally lovely but a lighter weight DK.
