I just started the cables last night Cheesy

I love this pattern, and I'm using Caron Simply Soft in Light Country Blue


I'm sort of allergic to wool, and this yarn is SO soft.

I've been looking at the pattern and I'm thinking about making the skirt much longer. I'm not sure if I'll have the patience, but I think it would look pretty. We'll see.

i cast on this for my sister it seems like a fun knit but i couldnt get any further than row2 becasue of the increases.. it just doesnt seem to be right and it is a pain to do it on the r2 (how am i supposed to do it in the first marker where there is only 1 stitch?)... i am thinking to switch into kfb instead, any ideas?

I am doing this in size small and I have just finished doing the first 6 rows 5 times. However, when I counted the stitches at the end, I had 200 instead of 253! OMG....what did I do wrong. This is my first sweater and I am getting really discouraged. Not to menton that my LLI look really crappy.
uuuuugh.  Sad

DUDE! I seriously adore this pattern. As soon as I gather all of my supplies, I'm starting.  Grin

Can you let us know how that turns out? I'm a vegan, so I'm always looking for good alternatives to wooly fibers. Thanks so much!

It looks fabulous-- the cables are holding up so well! I'm a big fan of simply soft-- $2.07 a skein does wonders for a college student's budget, and it's SOOO soft. I'll post pictures when I finish it (which will probably be very soon).

Excellent! I was going to ask you how yours was knitting up because I just bought some simply soft in Violet to make the Dahlia. Did you have any issues with the pattern? This is going to be my first sweater (if I don't chicken out!), so any advice would be much appreciated.

I haven't had any issues with the pattern. I do reccomend using stitch markers, just to keep track. I did come up a few stitches too many after joining in the round, so I'd say you should count your stitches whenever there is a count listed in the pattern.

This isn't the first sweater I've started, but hopefully it will be the first one I finish...  Undecided

It's a pretty straightforward pattern-- there were a few techniques I had to look up, though, so if you have any questions I'll try and help out the best I can. Wink

I didn't really add any important info, but I have finished mine and am about to block.  The neckline rolls quite a bit, even with the edging, but I hope to fix that in blocking.  Also, I was so impatient on the cable skirt - it never seemed to get any longer!

I'm so in! I loved the pattern the first time I saw it and am scampering to get money to buy the yarn this week.

I started on December 31 and after overcoming my few problems with the number of stitches, I am now knitting the cable skirt. This is a great pattern, easy to understand, even for a beginner like me. Smiley
