|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? Schulana Donegal Tweed ( Aran / 10 ply 95% Wool, 5% Cashmere, 104 yards / 50 grams )
What are you most proud of? I'm glad I found a similar yarn in Germany and I'm proud I was patient enough not to buy the second best.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Knit the swatches. All of them. If your gauge is off, do the math. You will never be content with a cardigan that doesn't fit you. To keep track of the charts, I first wrote them down in order like 2 / A / 1 / B / 1 / B and so on. Later I realized that I could read my knitting and distinguish between cables B and D, so I only had to mark cables A and C. I did this by marking washers with the letters A and C and tying them to red and blue scraps of yarn. I use them instead of stitchmarkers at the beginning of the cables A and C. Works fine for me.
