The (diagonal) Cashmere stitch is a technique that includes groups of three or four straight stitches of varying lengths, worked diagonally and in blocks. Generally the first block starts in the top left or right-hand corner and a row of blocks is continued to the opposite bottom corner. The next row starts at the bottom, next to the first row.
