11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Cabled living-on-the-edge sweater on: October 16, 2007 08:18:31 PM
Thanks for your kind words, everyone.  I would love to post a pattern for this sweater, but I never created it on my own. The sweater is a frankenstein of many patterns! 
If you are familiar with the book Fitted Knits by Stephanie Japel, I used her top down raglan that is found in the cozy v neck sweater (to end up with a v neck).
The decreases at the waist are from the hourglass sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
The hood is from the link in my first post, and the cable pattern down the arms is from Vogue Stitchionary 1.
The small cables on the bottom edge is just a simple right twist that can be found anywhere on the web. I adjusted the math for the different guage of yarn I used. WHEW! 

I really, really encourage you to get familiar and comfortable with a typical sweater pattern method (top down, bottom up, etc) that you like (mine is every sweater in Fitted Knits!) and then modify that with something you see that you like! This gives you the ability to go beyond any pattern and create things that are truly yours! Even better than that is when you come up with your own pattern, YOU get to pick the gauge!

Anyway... If you need more of an idea, PM me. I never wrote anything down, but I will try to help.

I printed off the pattern w/ pics when it first was posted. 
pseudoamazon's sweater is dead on for the patter, so have a look at her blog!

I love that hat! I am working on the bold and bulky mini cardi from fitted knits and that thing is flying it's going so fast.  Nice work.

This is a great way to feel a little devious without putting yourself into too much trouble! I love how this turned out, the cables are just great and the color combo is lovely.

I am one of those people though... only I call it "driving under the red." I like to see how long I can drive when the gauge is under E! Maybe I should put my mischievious urges to good use in my knitting instead! Cheesy

DON'T YOU EVER RUN OUT OF GAS??? Man that is nerve racking.  Just thinking about having to walk along the road someplace to get some gas worries me.  Heck, watching my dad drive around on a low tank made me so nervous.

It's crazy-cute.  I really like the hood, even if it doesn't fit on your head.  It would seem that living on the edge worked out - the universe provides for daredevils sometimes.
Once, I did the same thing.  Except it was for a sweater I was making my mom for Christmas.  And I didn't start until December 15th.  I got halfway down the sleeves and ran out. 
I ended up going to Hobby Lobby on Christmas Eve and buying more yarn that wasn't even the same weight, and having to fake my way through it.  At least the recipient was pretty forgiving (though I'm willing to bet she never wears it when I'm not around!)

Hey, it could be worse, I made a sweater for my mom and she never wears it when I AM around!

When I was little, and my dad would drive our family around with a low tank of gas, my mom would always say that he 'lived on the edge'. I am not one of those people. I never go below 1/8 of a tank of gas. I am a planner. So when I started this sweater with 3 skeins of yarn (that had no yardage marked), I felt really daring and kind of stupid, with my heart rate getting a little jazzed.  Man, I have a thrilling life.

The pattern is sort of based on this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=109542.0

The hood doesn't fit on my head, but like my mom also said, beggars can't be choosers.

Alright, I couldn't resist adding to this, being a huge Scrubs fan...
Season 5, Elliot throws Carla a baby shower, and nurse Roberts gives Carla a knitted baby sweater. When Clara asks about it, nurse Roberts goes on to tell her that she knits socks for her husband. As she is saying this Jordan is next to her mocking her and then nurse Roberts turns to Jordan and goes,
It's funny. So funny.  Cheesy

i knit ribbing (k3,p1)at the top for 3/4 in, so that the front would look similar to the back. She's not kidding when she says bind off tightly! what are you going to use for your straps? i used icord and i'm not really happy with it.
