Notes

A straight forward, well written pattern. The cables require just enough focus to manage to keep the knit interesting without being overly complex or overwhelming.

The yarn has a great hand and shows great definition on the cables but I did find it more splitty than I’d have liked for cabling without a cable needle. I do love the huge skeins! Chose to alternate skeins to make sure no color blocking occurred- two for the body, then used one of those skeins plus the third for each sleeve. I am overall pleased with this approach
