Does anyone have any clever tips on how to keep in pattern when decreasing cables, apart of course from following a chart! I am not great with charts and the one with this pattern is small and difficult to read. Ihave got a big mistake in the side cables as I am decreasing to create the pattern. Any tips would be much appreciated.

First off, I would enlarge my cable chart as large as you need it, you can DO This in a drugstore or some convenience store, etc. But I was looking at it, it is not that noticeable, it will be a personal decision.

Thanks. I think the only solution for me is to enlarge the chart and try and follow that way. I too thought at first it was that big a mistake but on studying it is actually the main curving cable I’ve messed up!

Love that pattern. Thanks for sharing. I scan charts and patterns into my computer so I can enlarge on screen, highlight, etc. I helps my aging eyes keep on track.

That sounds like a good plan. Thank you.

Thank you. I do want to try and get it right yes. Not least as I’ve kind of hinted that I’m making it and don’t wont to admit to the recipient that I’ve failed 😂
No pressure, eh??

That is a lovely pattern. I want to try making something using cables of my own design, but that may end up as just a wish. Please show us your finished item. I would love to see it. Thanks for sharing. I couldn't see an error either. So glad you figured it out. Susan

Looking at the red X you have added, there seems to be about 3 or 4 sts that were purled instead of knit. I think I can tell you how to fix this. Cut off 15 inches or so of your yarn, thread a needle and put needle into center of the last K stitch that is correct. (At tip of top right arm of X) Insert needle from wrong side so it exits into the right side of sweater, leaving about 3 inches on wrong side. Now work duplicate sts over the purls that are wrong, giving you the appearance of a knit line, ending at the live sts on knit needle. If you can't follow this, PM me and I'll try to help.

Thanks so much for this explanation. Having now really studied the pattern and photos on Ravelry I see that I actually have my decreases in the wrong place on the side where the red X is. As you can see from the other side the cable is supposed to curve in and not decrease. My DH has enlarged the cable charts for me so I can now at least read them; whether I can actually work them is an entirely different matter of course. Thanks so much though for taking the time to help me.

I just saw the pattern--impressively complicated.

If pattern or chart are in too small a print, can you take it to Office Max or a print shop and ask them to enlarge it?

My husband managed to enlarge it on the PC so now at least I can read it. However executing it is a whole new ball game!! Wish me luck.
