Notes

January 6, 2016

CO : 224 st.
k2 p2 ribbing

For herringbone pattern : increase 1 st. = 225 st.
For lightnings and cables : decrease 1st. = 224 st.

Frogged a substantial part of the sweater (the whole part starting from the ribbing in the middel, back and half of the front), because the cables were making it tighter. I forgot to increase stitches to prevent this from happening.
So now I added an extra 14 stitches and I hope it will work out fine…
(total : 238 st --> 17 pattern repeats for the cable pattern)
