Inspired by the a knitter meme off of the Hugo song 99 Problems. The knitter version goes

‘If your having stitch problems

I feel bad for you son.

I got 99 problems

and a purl ain’t one.’

The pattern has 99 stitches in its cast on and no purl stitches. I wanted something so heavily cabled that the cables become a texture. Because of this, the pattern is suitable for highly variegated yarns.

Note on yarn: You need 110 yards for bulky or 220 yards of worsted. You will be working the worsted double throughout the pattern.

This pattern is two pages with full color photos.
