It is very stretchy and still the pattern looks great when stretched out. Relaxed, as in the picture, it looks like a child size, doesn't it?!

Happy to share pattern - pm me with your email address.

Lovely! I LOVE cables, and yours are stunning so far. I was recently discussing w/some ladies that there are many cultures who make INTENTIONAL mistakes in their works, because "nothing is perfect" (or, "only G-d is perfect"). So, your design feature not only makes your sweater truly yours, mistakes are nothing to be afraid of or bothered by!

That's just WONDERFUL! I don't think I'd have the patience to do this many cables... And I also consider "mistakes" a "personal touch".

Just today I finished the back side up to where the raglan starts for the sleeves.....and I am going to have to read the instructions a couple more hundred times before beginning the decs.
You just may see more posts from me asking - no begging for help.


Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments.

WOW. I am so thoroughly impressed. I am soo intimidated to do a huge project like that, sooo many opportunities to screw up! I think I would never finish. Power to you! I can't wait to see the FO.
