What I like about the pattern that I chose for this sweater is that it is unusual to find Seed Stitch used as the primary element in a cable, rather than just in the background.
To complement the texture of the cables, I used Seed Stitch for the cuffs, hems and neck band as well.
In Double Chain Cable pattern, 24 sts and 28 rows = 4"/10cm; in Seed st, 18 sts and 31 rows = 4"/10cm.
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
