Hello everyone. I went a little crazy last week and decided in a matter of a day that I want to knit this sweater. So I bought some Cascade 220 in color #9448 which is a Dark Olive and casted on this weekend. Here is my question...does it really only take 4 skeins? That seems like a very small amount of yarn for a long sleeve sweater. Here is a small peek at the progress I made:
I totally read the pattern wrong and had to frog and restart about 5 or 6 times which made me feel very dumb. The chart just was not clear to me--I was not counting the purl rows as a part of the chart so my cables were elongated. I now have it all figured out and so hopefully I can continue on without too much drama. I am making the alterations that most of you are making to the sleeves and will surely add some overall length. The pattern is fun to knit and I love the feel of the garment so far. I have enjoyed watching everyone's progress here and look forward to seeing some FO's.
