1  Tempting cables in Knitting: Completed Projects by another on: June 19, 2006 09:49:45 AM
I've been lurking around these boards for a few months now, but having just finished my first sweater, Knitty's Tempting II, I feel like popping in and showing off. Grin

Here it is laying flat, looking rather deceptively long:




And here being worn, behaving shorter than it should:




I didn't much fancy the idea of attaching a buckle to the top like in the original pattern, so I decided to attach it to a cable instead, using short rows to shape the angle between cable and band. This was my first time attempting short rows, so it's a bit messy, but it looks alright in this particular photo. XD




Aaaand that's it! Thanks for looking. :3

This looks exactly like the Jean Greenhowe pattern from her Knitted Animals booklet.  Thanks so much for the pattern link!

You're right -- I have that booklet:




These toys were always my favourites; I recognised the koala immediately, even though it's been about six years since I knitted anything from the book. Grin
