Ion Turtleneck
#14 Cabled Turtleneck by Melissa Leapman
Needles & yarn
Manos del Uruguay Maxima
8 skeins = 1744.0 yards (1594.7 meters), 800 grams

Pattern A+. Easy to follow chart, very intuitive.
Yarn A+. So soft and squooshy!
Per the norm, I’m not a HUGE fan of sewing up….but this came out so lovely.

Size Large
Day 1: Gauge is spot on with size 9 needles. VERY easy charts.

5/14 : A little more than halfway through the chart, and it is VERY intuitive, and easy to follow. My guesses as to where the cables should go are usually correct! :)

5/21: Back done with three days of pretty concentrated knitting. Getting a bit worried about getting this done by June 7th!! Off to cast on for the front!

6/2 Finished the front-- fudged a tiny bit of the shoulder shaping to match the length on the back. Cast on for first sleeve. All is well.

6/8 Finished the sleeves, sewed shoulder seams, and started the turtleneck!! I’m SO close to being done! This really is a fantastic and easy pattern…
