Dec 31st - Finished the back last night. Starting the Godet this morning.

Dec 29th - Left side of back is done and sides are joined and I’ve started the decreases for the top of the back.

Dec 27th - Right back finished. Casting on for left back.

Dec 26th - Starting this sweater for me…I’ve been wanting to make it for a while. I’m expecting a challenge!

PATTERN #30 Cabled Coat
photo on page 146, instructions on page 200

Chart 1 on page 202, row 9 is incomplete.
Please insert an RT in between the 4-st LC and the 4-st RC on the left side of the chart.

Alterations/Pattern edits:

  • Back cast on - knitting for 1.5 inches leaves me on the WS row. I did one extra row to get to correct side for decreasing pattern so edge is actually a bit over 1.5 inches. (I’ve seen this same problem in other people’s notes. If you have the correct gauge you should end up on the wrong side)

  • The decreases pattern for the back pieces at the bottom is mis-worded. It only states 12 decreses total for the first part. It should say 12 more times (13 times total).

  • When joining the back bottom pieces (left and right) the moss stitch pattern didn’t line up correctly. I’m not sure if this was my mistake or a pattern issue. To make the two sides mesh I added one stitch in between the pieces. I plan on just leaving the extra stitch in the middle and decreasing as pattern states on both sides.
