thanks so much for the pattern. I made a scarf for her and I think this would go really well with it, especially since she doesn't like hats. I'm going to try and get it started tonight!

Weeeell. Do you know how to knit that braid-thingy?

No I don't. Is it just cables? I can do those..

thanks for the info

i found a couple of lace stitch ideas last night that I thought might work...http://www.3gcs.com/adcock/free%20patterns/wavy_lacy_ribbing.htm
that one looks pretty easy and it's similar.

I've made a couple sweaters before and I'm comfortable writing the pattern for it, it's the cables and lace (mostly the cables) I'm not sure about...I have my gauge worked out and everything, but I'm still not clear on whether I need to adjust my # of stitches for the cables. Will it be too small if I don't add extra stitches for cables?

i also thought of replacing the cables with some other stitched pattern. i'm going to look around for something...

I'm making a cardigan for my dad, and it's a surprise replacement for the one he had years ago. I have the original and I want to make it similar but I haven't had any luck finding a pattern (online anyway) that I could alter accordingly. So I'm thinking I could make one up. The basic pattern for a cardigan seems pretty straight-forward, my concern is the cables. I've never done them before and although I think I could figure it out, I'm wondering if you have to make any adjustments to your measurements to account for them? Would you just use your gauge from stocking st?

Also, the sides have this type of stitching (see below), and I don't know what it is...are there dropped stitches or what? Could I get the same effect with another type of stitch?

Obviously, I'm not a super advanced knitter hehee...I am however very ambitious. Any suggestions/ideas would be appreciated!

thanks for the replies, i was kind of thinking that was the case...I'm still early enough in that I could frog it without too much pain. maybe I'll just do it in garter stitch.
