Yarn Karabella Boise (50% cashmere, 50% merino; 163 yd [150 m]/ 50 g): #67 slate blue, 3 balls.

For Sophia@2, There isn't a chart. After 12/12 RC: are the directions for this right cable. You will slip 12 stitches to your cable needle and hold in the back of your work, then (k2, p2) 3 times, then (k2, p2) 3 times from your cable needle. Good luck.

If the width is 8 inches why do you cast on 100 stitches?

Why would you do a three-needle-bind-off  (thereby creating a seam) when you could do a grafted join?

I have the latest version of Adobe and am still unable to download this pattern.  I'd love to have it if there is any way you can get this glitch fixed. Thanks,  Bev M.

I love this pattern and would love to make it, however, as I am in Australia, we always have  a Wool Ply to work with, when selecting Wool and Needles.  Here Baby wool comes in 3-Ply and 4-Ply, we also have 5-Ply , 8-Ply, 12-Ply, and others in between.  As we do not get the Wool that you use in this Pattern, I am wondering which I should use.  Is it a loose knitted item?  And with the Gauge, I would need to have heaps of wool so that I could put them together to find out which one is suitable to use.  Dilemna big time.

You had me until the bind off.  I think I will graft the ends instead for a seamless look.  Otherwise, a very nice pattern, and the yarn is scrumptious.

Thankfully I was able to download this lovely pattern.  Soon as our knitting group finishes our "Olympic Challenge"  I want to start this cowl.  Thank you.

Make sure you have the latest and greatest version of Adobe Acrobat reader.  Having an older version of reader can cause that msg.  I have downloaded without a pblm.

"RC" stands for "Right Cross." The cables in this pattern cross to the right, so you hold the stitches on the cable needle behind the stitches on the working needle. The Stitch Guide is telling you how to make a right-crossing cable with 12 stitches; you should be able to work the cable according to the stitch guide.

The only part of the pattern that came up was the supplies needed. The actual instructions did not. Can you please send the whole pattern? I would really appreciate it. Thanks Madeleine Bucci, techie2003@comcast.net  707-364-7348

I am confused about something in the directions.  Under "Stitch Guide" it says 12/12 RC, what does that mean?  I looked in the glossary and RC stands for reading charts, however, there is no chart in this pattern.  I know this section is talking about the cable.  Please advise, thanks.

Thanks for letting us know about the error in the number of skeins needed to finish this project! We're working to get the pattern PDF itself changed. Sorry about the confusion!

Why does this say 2 balls of Karabella Boise? There are at least 2 of us on Ravelry who have knitted this pattern with this expensive yarn only to find out 2 balls only gets you to almost 21" not 25." If I had known, I would have bought a less expensive yarn.

This is just what I am looking for!  I spin with a drop spindle and have made my own colorway of blended shades, choosing wool colors cinnabar(a very dark coral), coral, crocus (a blue-violet midtone),and dijon (a very gold-green or green-gold depending on the light).  I split each color ( I had 4 oz of each) into fourths,  then each ounce into fourths, recombined to mix the colors (  for example, AAAA was 100% cinnabar, next would be AAAB, then AABB, on thru DAAA), and spun just drafting them together (I don't have a carder to blend).   I'm on my last ounce spinning, then have to wet & thwack, wind and knit, so am expecting my project done by the end of winter's cold, 2020.   Just kidding, I'm a fast knitter.  I was going to be looking for a mobius with a reversable stitch pattern for a wrap, so I'll just add some width.  I know that my color choices raise eyebrows, but I wanted something with a fairly "big" contrast....and so far, I think it's going to be lovely.
