Now that I figured out how to cast on, cast off, knit, purl and read a simple pattern, I'm quickly becoming addicted to knitting.
In a knitting shop recently, I spotted this pattern: 4402 by Hayfield with cable stitches up the front.
The whole pattern looked fairly easy with the exception of the cable stitches: C4B and C4F.
So I looked on You Tube for C4B and C4F and found this demo here.
It was easy!
Using yarn by Hayfield called Bonus Chunky I made a cable knit sweater in size 2/3 for Mr. A.
I had a difficult time with the neckband and the seams are awful. I definitely need a lesson on seams and bands. Toss in a lesson on blocking too.
But hey, I did it and it looks not too bad at all.
Here's a closeup of my knit stitches and the cable. It's not perfect but for a second attempt at knitting something other than a scraggly scarf I'm happy with the results.
….. off to knit something else……….
