I hardly ever follow a pattern AS IS. This time I had promised I would. How hard could it be?
The sweater is the Khaki Cables from Knitters Winter 2006. I did modify the pattern but just a bit on the overall length of the body and the sleeves.....
Started Feb the 7th and finished Feb the 22. Not bad other than the frogs sat by me in Icord stage for over a week!
Now it is done and finished, blocked and pictures for you to see.
The cable patterns are great and the overall instructions clear and mistake free.
Yarn: alpaca/wool 50/50 spun by Spinderella
Worsted weight aprox 4 stitches to an inch
Needles US 7.
I used yarn to secure the frogs and not sewing thread as the pattern says to do. Why would you want to use sewing thread?
Off to teach myself FairIsle with two hands!
