well, the more i think about it, the more this tank as screaming at me to be knit in the round.  i mean, all the even rows of the clover lace are just purled, the torchon lace is actually written to be in garter, so making it st st would actually be easier in the round (just read the chart!), and the cable is written to be read either way (all the stitches in the even rows are just k on RS/p on WS or k on WS/p on RS).  plus, all the shaping (until you get to the armholes when it has to be split anyway) is just single decreases in a row, no binding-off 3 stitches or anything.  and i'd be able to try it on as i go.  good thing i only made it through 4 rows of ribbing last night before i went to bed...

what do you guys think?

I hoping you can do it in the round as I was looking to do a similar thing (coz I hate knitting flat).  Maybe you can try it for all of us who are too scared too  Smiley

Seriously, I can't see why it wouldn't work, though it would be much easier of your garter stitch became st st.

your chart is awesome =)
I think the round might be the way to go too.
I'm still on Via Diagonale, but trying to do a full pattern repeat each day - that way I'll finish soon so I can start this - it's so pretty!

well i did start it in the round and i'm really liking the way it's going.  i put it on hold for a bit (since the wedding's not til this summer and i've got tons of stuff i need to get done in the meantime), but so far i'm about 12 rows into the lace/cable stuff.  i'll upload progress pics hopefully sometime soon, but right now i have no internets at home due to a slight violation of the digital millenium copyright act which caused the phone company to take away my internet access.

haha, well i found out today that it wasn't my fault, it was the bf's.  apparently he downloaded adobe photoshop illegally.  good news/bad news, i guess.  good news is, i get to keep my illegal music!  bad news is the phone company is purposely holding our internet access for at least 10 days before they'll give it back....

which is why i'm currently pirating wireless from the neighbors!

The chart for the helix comes from another pattern, a free scarf pattern available on the internet, yes? Has anybody knitted this? I can't see from any of the pictures which cable crosses over the other one, so I'm not sure whether the helix twists the way it's supposed to.
The designer seems to be a biologist, so I want to trust the pattern, but it's so commonplace even in scientific journals etc. to see a picture of the helix in mirror image/turning the wrong way, that I want to check! Does anyone have a repeat of the helix knitted to tell me whether it goes the right way?

Thanks! Sarah

I haven't knitted it yet, but from the cart and pictures here http://www.twosheep.com/helix/ it looks like a right handed helix to me.

Will swap for a DIY handmade paper kit!
