Here is 3 photo's of my progress so far
I have completed the ribbing and the transition rows and am about to start the first pattern repeat.
The ribbing measures 4.5 inches and the whole thing 5.5 inches. had to make it that extra half an inch to stop on row 5 of the cabling.
Here is the first photo of the whole thing
Here is a photo of the centrel ribbing done with the cable. I love the thin cable going up. very pleased how that turned out.
here is a photo of the cable on the side. I would not do this on the next one. like the cable but not how the edge is a bit lumpy.
Feel like a bit of a donut at the moment. was looking at it last night and though one of the cable repeats on the side looked bigger. Thought maybe I had miscounted and done a couple of extra row. so went back 8 rows ripped it out stitch by stitch as I did not want to loose my count on all the different cable rows. Finally got to my goal just to realise that the slight difference in size is because I went from a 4mm needle to a 5mm.
