now that’s a lot of stitches!

whoa, cables

Started with 376, to be exact – in worsted weight, on 5 mm needles. That’s a 32″ needle, there, with one row of decreases! The yarn is O-wool, in a nice chocolate brown. Want a closeup?

Yum. The pattern is Silver Belle (Rav link) from the Vogue Holiday issue – it was one of the cover patterns that’s free on their website. I hadn’t really considered it until I saw Zebraknits’ version. I think it’ll be really nice!

And all those cables are just plain fun!

    Yes, the very one I saw that made me put it back on my to-knit list. I knew as soon as I saw your first photo. What other current pattern has cables that go sooo far around? The O-wool is gorgeous, as is your cabling.
