What advice would you give someone starting this project? My grandma taught me this particular trick....but Ann Budd also teaches it very well. And I did pick up some good tips on sweater surgery! This fix took 12 minutes. Frogging and re knitting that many rows would have taken me probably an hour and a half.

The Marian Tabler square from The Great American Aran Afghan. While I don't recommend this book to beginners because it's older and was printed long before publishers really knew what to do with charts, if you are clever and can deal with the insane way they laid things out the designs themselves are not difficult.

That's a beautiful cable pattern ... and a tricky one to fix! Excellent job!
