Count Me In
I received my yarn for this on Friday and cast on this weekend. It's Cascade 220 Superwash in Turtle. I'm about 8 inches into the back. It's a lovely pattern so far and I can't wait to get further into it.

I started the fronts both at once. I am 2 cable repeats in. I love this pattern!

Question about the sleeves-I heard they run tight so how can I make them looser? I'm making the 48" thanks!

Hi Dollyce!

Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful time on your trip. I have temporarily put the CPH on hold. I've just passed the cuff of one sleeve and it's been sitting on my table waiting for me. I'm currently in the middle of a teddy bear for a baby shower gift and hoping to get back to my CPH soon!

I made the 48" too...and my sleeves are fine...and I have 'plump' arms. No skinny arms here!

If you think you still want to make the sleeves bigger around, I'd work the increases more frequently after the cuff is knit...this will add more width... however, please realize that these 'extra' increases will have to be decreased out eventually so that the sleeve cap fits into the sleeve hole of the body.

Yeah, been there, done that myself! My CPH is still sitting there waiting for me to put in the zipper! I am almost in the mood!

I've been knitting for a baby shower, and then I started that GROVE mid-calf hooded Malabrigo coat (for myself) on May 1...and whilst on vacation I got the entire BACK done, and am well into the Left Front now. Ran into 5 pattern errors/language ambiguities...for which I had to email the designer (Elsebeth Lavold) about yesterday. Still awaiting her reply. God Bless Designers.
