I got Cables Untangled by Melissa Leapman after Christmas – Indigo was having a 30% off hardcover books sale. I’m so happy I picked it up – it is a fabulous book. I had bought all this organic wool from work a little while before, in a nice oatmeal shade, and was planning on doing an aran sweater with it. Lo and behold, here was one just perfect!
I am slightly worried that I won’t have enough yarn – I have 7 skeins of the organic wool, but that’s less than what the book calls for. We’ll have to see. I’m already about 6″ up the back of the sweater! And I have quite a bit left on my first ball of yarn.
The errata? Well, see in the straight columns, how they’re kind of messed up at the bottom compared to the last 4 inches or so, and compared to the book? Well, that’s because when I started out I followed the chart. And the chart has a big honkin’ mistake in it.
So here it is: All the right and left twist stitches should be the same as in row 1 of the chart.
They’re written as alternating each RS row, but that doesn’t give you the straight columns as in the photos. Luckily that was pretty easily figured out – I’m leaving the alternating twists at the bottom because I don’t want to rip it out. Design feature, and all that. And the good news is that the chart is very easily memorized once you’ve set it up.
Hurrah, I’m actually on track to get to bed earlier tonight!
