So here I am, snowed in (4-6 in in North Carolina is a seriously big deal - I haven't seen this much - heck any - in 5 years) browsing Ravelry.... I'm a glutton for punishment, I am, since my stash isn't big enough to do much of anything yet.
Anyhow, I'm looking at patterns, and I saw a free one
(second from the right) very very similar to the Cable Luxe one if you haven't broken down and bought it. I would be tempted (if I understood cables just a teensy bit better) to use the pattern for the physical structure and chart out whatever darn pattern I pleased. I'm not too confident about creating the structure (shoulders, sleeves, neckline - where to increase and decrease to get what I want), so that's what I really really need patterns for.
