Heliopath Week 3 – Case of the MindF*&k Cable Pattern

Fellow Heliopath knitters! Let’s all take a deep breath in….. and out…..

Well the simple ribbing is done and now it’s time for the big guns. THE CABLED PATTERN.

It’s funny because within the pattern there is very cute comment about how if she were knitting this, Luna would have made mistakes, thus the adorable drop stitches. I seriously know from being a Potter fan and Luna supporter that home girl would not have gotten past the first swatching for this bad-boy – Nargles and this pattern would be ridiculous. I digress. I’m really excited to actually begin the work on the cabled pattern now that I got over my emo-swatching issues. The most important part of this is the set up. I chose to knit the second size vest and therefore have 151 stitches on my needles. Based on the pattern and ‘borders’ on the button front of the vest, I will knit three (3) ‘side by side’ pattern pieces and due to my extra long torso of steel I will knit either 5 or 6 of the 16 row pattern. My gauge was spot-on for the swatching, but depending on how this piece looks and where it rests on my hips I will make that call when I get there.

For the next two weeks we will be knee deep in this pattern – then comes the exciting dropping stitches and decreasing parts!
