I've always admired that myself, ribbing transitioning into cables, and so wanted to be able to do that. The chart makes it so easy I'll be able to post a 'real' chart soon as DH teaches me how to put them into PDF files.

I'm loving cabling without a cable needle. It is allowing me to develop even more dexterity with my fingers; I can only imagine how it is improving brain function.

First chart converted to PDF
Oh, my goodness. I had to keep reducing the size of the file. I hope this works.

ETA - The file works It is for the cable stitch pattern that I'm using for the Boot Topper.

I think it worked just fine. I opened the chart and can read it. Is this info helpful?

Update on progress
I was very close to finishing the first of two of these; began binding off and found that about halfway through the cabled section one of the cables had twisted, and another mistake that would be difficult to remedy without So I

So I've now completed ten - eight row repeats. I think maybe one more eight row repeat, thirteen rows of ribbing and this will cover my entire leg from below my knee to my ankle.

So this is morphing into something other than a boot topper. A gaiter? Or maybe a legwarmer
