This was one of the kits I wanted really bad from We Are Knitters. The cable looked so interesting. This was rated as Advanced. It looked intimidating. But once I got a hang of it, it wasn’t that difficult. I thought I was a genius when I used the stitch marker as cable needle.
I did make a few mistakes. One of the rows, I twisted the cable twice instead of once. I didn’t go back and fix it. There was another time I didn’t twist the cable at all and didn’t realize it after two full sets had past. I had to undo that whole two sets.
Overall, I would like to make this sweater a little bigger and longer sleeves. This yarn is so soft. 100% alpaca. I am waiting to see how this will turn out after wash. I talked to a yarn shop owner once she said 100% alpaca usually doesn’t hold up. I hope she’s wrong. It will really suck when you find something you like and doesn’t work out for one way or another.
