Notes

I’m having a lot of fun with this, even though I’m just using really crappy acrylic. It’s a big thing!!

January 2013: FINALLY got up the courage to start the argyle sections. They are gorgeous. I’m really looking forward to completing this blanket.

Okay, I should post some details. I’m following the pattern exactly, no mods, except on one of the border panels and one of the internal cable panels I did C4F instead of C4B, so I have two Z twist and two S twist cable panels. I also slipped the last stitch on the cable panels (not on the argyle panels, though).

I’m using a cabled cast-on and a sewn bind-off.
