I’ve finished the ‘wheat ear cable yoke’ sweater from the Interweave Knits Summer 2007 issue. I love it. I used the ultra alpaca….SO SOFT. Other sweaters will never feel soft again seems to be the only downside, lol.
I made some changes…lengthened the sleeves and the body quite a bit, knitted in the round rather than seaming. My only seams were under the arms. I lengthened the patterned area under the arms by one inch. I had some issues with the decreases….I ended up decreasing every other row at a point and then two rows in a row just before the ribbing. Yet I had perfect guage…go figure. Another ‘go figure’….I have 300 yards of the yarn left. I’m thinking mittens 🙂 It worked out great though, and I love it!
