02.11.10: On pattern row 83 of chart D, I increased 8 sts (212 sts total) and will start decreases later than what is called for in the pattern - probably 10th round after the end of chart D to try and get a better fit for me.

02.05.10: OOOPS!!! I just discovered that I was increasing incorrectly. I increased every other row, which at first, is correct, but then the increases slow to every 4 rows. I am too far in the pattern to just tink back and I have no life line, so I may just rip out the whole thing and start over.

02.04.10: LOVE this pattern! Love the yarn, love the cables, love the design, love the garter stitch!

02.01.10: Twisted German Cast-On

I immediately fell in love with this sweater as soon as I saw it, so I just had to knit it for myself. I was thinking about knitting this for the Ravelympics 2010, but I just couldn’t wait to cast on.

The Zara yarn I am using is incredibly soft - I’ll definitely use this yarn again.
