I'm dying to make this.  I have some leftover wool in my stash that I think would work nicely.  Anyone wanna do this with me?  Maybe with the moral support, I'll actually finish a project for once. Tongue

I have started this already. About 10 inches into the back. I really like the pattern, but I am not sure if the yarn (a cotton/acrylic blend with a twist to it) is the best for it. I think it should work up pretty quick though.

I'm thinking I might cast on for this as a stash-buster. I have approximately one million balls of Wool-ease chunky left over from a sweater I made for my mom a couple of years ago. Going down a needle size should give me gauge for this, and I'd finally get some of those giant skeins out of my stash! Wahoo!

Oh, and it's a cool sweater, too  Wink

i want to make this so badly!!! but i've promised myself that i wouldn't buy any more yarn until i make a significant dent in my stash. and alas, i don't have enough yarn in my stash to make it  Cry

i will definitely do this... probably this summer to have for next fall.

good luck though! *sending good thoughts!*

I am trying this pattern, even though I know it is far to complicated for me, that being said difficulty has never stoped me before.

I do however have a question, when you finish the ribbing it calls for ( I am making the M size)

set up row, place marker work 7 sts in pattern...Then nothing...do I repeat this until I am finished the row???

I am making this... for the cable set up row you: Work 8 sts in the rib pattern that you have been doing, place marker, work Set-up Row (in the cable pattern notes), place marker, work 7 sts in the rib pattern. do the set up row and then then 7 stitches in rib pattern four times altogether, then purl one.

Hope this is clearer!

I'm tempted to try this pattern (I just happen to have the reccomended yarn in my stash) but I can tell it's too complicated for me.  I've never done cables before.  Plus, when I read through the pattern, the section about casting on to a spare needle makes no sense at all to me.  Curse my limited knitting skills! (shakes fist at heavens).

Mojo, don't let cables put you off, they really aren't so bad.  Why not knit up a practise swatch of the cable pattern on some yarn you have lying around?  It is very satisfying to see it taking shape.

As for the casting on to a spare needle part, I'm just going to figure that out when I get there.  It'll work out just fine, I'm sure!
