Loving My First Cable project

This is a great first cable project and I'm really enjoying it. I'm using Cascade 220 Quatro (more details on my blog) and it's going quickly. Only hiccup so far is that I got all the way up the first sleeve and hit 20 inches but didn't have as many stitches as the pattern suggested. It was a full ten rows off! Never had row gauge be an issue before, but learn something new everyday.

Nice colour!!!!,I fell in love with a similiar one from a UK shop and will be making a second CPH in it,only hope the screen was true in colour representation!!!!

Hi, I'm new to the CPH KAL and haven't started yet. I just did a gauge swatch in Cascade 220 and both the st/in and row gauge are off. I'm not sure if it's worth going up a needle size (my gauge is on size 8s)or if I need to use another yarn. Did you make any adjustments to the pattern?

I think it will block spot on for width and so it was really weird to miss the row gauge. I was 2 stitches short by 20 inches, which means I should have had a full 8 rows more to get those extra 2 stitches!

I am not concerned because I keep trying it on and since it fits, it should be ok. Only mod was to keep the size 8 needles for the ribbing so it wouldn't pull in.
