I didn't end up making any changes, although I do wish my cables on the front and back were going opposite ways... I didn't realize their mistake in the pattern until I had almost the whole front done and was too lazy to frog it and start over.
Why? Are their rules about cables mirroring each other on a sweater?  Please advise as I am thinking about designing a cardigan with one large cable on the left and a large cable on the right.

Well, I HAD bought the Lion Brand pattern to do, but I may have to alter the neck to be more like the Phildar one...I like that.

there aren't any rules, per se, but for the most part, people like symmetry.... left mirrors right, front mirrors back.  it's just the way people are........

Thanks for this. So which side should have a right slanting cable and which side should have a left slanting cable and what about the back?

it isn't a matter of should, at that point - then it's up to preference - so picture the center line up the front - if the left turns in towards the center, so should the right

generally, the back will look just like the front, which means the side seams (or where they would be) are the lines of symmetry

It doesn't matter.  Whichever you prefer, there are no rules.  In fact many people don't care if it's symmetrical or not.  The Phildar pattern isn't symetrical at all.

I feel like I am in a knitting black hole.  I measured the body earlier this week and it was almost 12 inches.  I knit all week, used an entire ball of yarn and now it measures just slightly over 12 inches.  I think I may put all 300+ stitches on hold and work on a sleeve for awhile. It would be nice to see some progress.

It really doesn't matter which way the cables go.  I just like how the looked in the pic on the Lion Brand pattern, all going in towards to center braid, and was a little surprised when mine wasn't coming out looking like that.  I'm still happy with my result, I don't think that all the cables going to same way ruins it.

I think that this would look quite nice and I can be a bit compulsive about my knitting, so I know that if this did not happen it would bother question. Question for all of you, if I were to work a sweater with one cable on each side, does this mean a right leaning cable on the right and a left-leaning cable on the left or vice versa.
