I don’t understand the cable. is it 9 stitches on a cable needle and cross 1?. could you please explain?
I would like to know what weight of yarn to buy? Also how much yarn is needed, 5 balls could vary a lot depending on size of ball and weight. (i.e. 50 gram, 100 gram, etc.
Also, is there a reason why you did not start out with the ribbing at the bottom and then work into the sweater itself? Just wondering.
I love the design of this Pure Wool Sweater but I find the instructions a bit vague. I have been knitting for about 30 years and I have never come across some of the instructions that are in this pattern. What does
increase 6 x 1 stitches mean? The same instructions are used elsewhere in the pattern like 10 x 1 in the sleeves and 8 x 1 on the back piece. Also on decreasing on the sleeves 3+2+1+1+2+3+4+5+6. Do you mean decrease every row 3 stitches each end then 2 stick decrease on very next row then decrease 1 stitch on the very next row?
Thank you for your explanations.
Disappointed not to see a gauge or tension definition. The lack of instruction is also disappointing.
