My mom convinced me to try this pattern out.  It looks easy enough.  It's basically two rectanges sewn together w/ a cable pattern that looks like the number 8!  Very cute and great for summer, since it's sleevless.  Also looks pretty simple aside from the cables, which i tried on a swatch last night. 

Anyone else interested?Huh?  I am going to buy yarn tonight! Grin

The great Poor Miss Finch is hosting a Cable 8 KAL on her website.  I've joined but haven't even gotten the yarn for it yet.  What are you using?  Also, be sure to check out the errata here.  Apparently the cable pattern is wrong in the magazine.  I'll be here showing my progress eventually!

OH!  I want to make this!   I fell in love with this pattern awhile back.

What yarn are you using?  I have some Rowan Cork that I might be able to use...

Thanks for posting the errata, mojisha.  I had almost started this last week.  Glad I didn't because I would have been VERY confused.

Here is the pic, in case anyone is wondering...


And thanks for the errata!

I am off to look at yarn tonight w/ my momma!  I am leaning towards Rowan Cotton Glace or All Season Cotton, but we'll see...

I think I'm going with the All Seasons Cotton.

Knitkatgrrl, I like your blog!  I also spend most of my work hours knitting or looking at knitting-related things on the internet.  But...I'm a receptionist so it doesn't affect anything.  I can't wait to see the yarn you choose!

Ok, ladies!  I am using All Season Cotton by Rowan in a color called Jaunty!



As you can see I am about 2 inches in and my next row will start the cable pattern I think!  Let me see what colors you choose!

I bought the All Seasons cotton in Tapestry, an off-white color.  You can see it
here.  It's pretty basic, but I think it will look good with a summer tan.  The seller ships fast, so I hope to cast on early next week!  Knitkatgrrl, I love your color!

Yeah, that color will look great w/ a summer tan!  I look good in brights, so I thought Jaunty would be good.  My mom loved it too.

Ooops, I am a moron.  I didn't read the pattern exactly and ended up having one straight rib inbetween each cable.  I discovered this about 5 inches into the back.  Sh*t!  I frogged it until right before the cable part and tried it again.  So much better now that I did it the right way.  Phew...

Also, I just want to confirm that I am doing the cable pattern right.  It looks right, but I want to be sure since this is my first time doing cables on a project.  Here is what I am doing...

Slip 4 stitches (2k, 2p) onto the cable needle.  K the next 2 stitches on the real needle, then slip the 2 unpurled purl stitches from the cable needle to the real needle and purl.  Then K the last two stitches from the cable needle.  I hope that makes sense and it CORRECT since that's what I have been doing...

I just finished the front and back and am going to crochet it together this weekend.

I used double stranded Cascade Sierra and LOVED it. It feels wonderful.
