Yarn: Shepherd Classic 100% Worsted Wool in Orange

Needles: 4mm / 6 US

Gauge:  5.5 stitches and 7.5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Embossed Diamond

Source: Printed Silk Cardigan in Interweave Knits, Spring 2008

Comments: In the cardigan repeats of this diamond are used to provide texture to the upper bodice of the sweater.  Its pretty effective, although the left leaning twists are far less neat than the right-leaning ones.  I wonder if that's user error (ie: my fault), or if they could be improved by using a different twist technique?
