    Such a great sweater! I have been thinking about making this pattern for months now but don’t think I quite have the skills yet. Yours is amazing!

      I’ve had this sweater on my queue list (on Ravelry) for years, and it was a Knit-Along that finally pushed me to do it. There were some first time cable knitters in the Knit-Along so feel free to be fearless!
