  1. I give this one a 4.75 – I agree, I would like 3/4 length sleeves. Maybe we should do this one as a group, and have Kathleen teach us how to add 3/4 sleeves! I think it wouldn’t take much to add the length to the body, I have lengthened sweaters before just by adding more rows of stitching between the waist and the first area where the shaping began. I am pretty straight up and down, so it was easy, someone with more curves than me might have to do a bit of adjusting, but I bet you could blog for help! I really, really like this sweater, and I have the yarn already to do it! Whoop!


  2. OK, so I LOVE this sweater, but I have a real problem. With the cables, there are 8 stitch repeats that are marked out in red that you have to repeat for the pattern. The problem is, the repeat splits the cables – how do you DO that? If you look at the cable patterning, it just cuts the cable between stitches 2 and three.

    Can anyone tell me how to work this?
