When I was a child, my mother had a gorgeous yellow sweater which I just loved. My design, which first appeared in Cast On magazine's Fall, 2003 issue, is based on what I remember of her sweater. The Rice Stitch is one of my favorites, and it provides a nice backdrop for the movement of the cable.
In Rice Stitch, 20 sts and 23 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.
