This would be a great first cabling project for a beginner. The instructions are extremely well written and the sweater knits up fast with Aran weight yarn. The yarn is nice and soft after a good soak. However, it remains a tad scratch/itchy so best for outerwear. Overall, I enjoyed working with the yarn and LOVE the sweater. It has a nice rustic look and feel. I would use the yarn again! NOTE: I added couple close up photos of the button band for reference. A couple people mentioned they got holes when trying to add the button band. However, if you pick and knit the stitches correctly (as Carol describes) you will not get holes. Hopefully the images will help. I suspect some were just picking up stitches then knitting on the next row, which could result in a holes.

Looks great! I agree with you, I had no trouble with holes when picking up the button band.
