Cable Sweater DONE!
I love cotton sweaters and this on will be worn often - it fits nicely and is so soft and comfortable - a keeper!
Pattern: Cable Sweater by Kathy Zimmerman from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2006
Size: Small (35")
Yarn: Tahki Cotton Classic "Sea Foam" 12 50gm skeins (a wonderful 100% cotton yarn - so soft to knit with and to wear!)
Needles: US 5 for body/ US4 for neckband
Errors in pattern: errata for cable stitch is listed here. There is also a chart error on row 25 (middle 4 stitches should be knit) which I notified Vogue about, but it has not been corrected.
Modifications: not many - I lengthened the body by an inch and picked up about 10 less stitches for the neckband (which turned out to be perfect!)
The chart for this pattern was difficult to read (everything looked the same) so this is what I did.
I also perfected my mattress stitch while putting this together (not a quick task)....Here is a close up.
This side view picture was taken mainly for the background - a way to sneak in the Clematis - they don't last too long, but they sure are pretty!
The quilting bug still has me! I have cut out the whole thing in the last 3 days! There are 400 4" half square triangles and 1300 2" half square triangles. Now all I have to do is put them all back together again!
