From Joyce:

Our newest member emailed me with this question (below). I thought I'd post it here for the group to read as I am unsure of the answer:

I have started the project and already have a question. I am not sure what the pattern means by continueing the pattern while progressing with the cable patterns.


I have looked through the blog and guess no one else had this problem understanding the pattern.

Thanks for any help.

If anyone can help Joyce, please post it here. Welcome, Joyce!

You mean "Cont to work rows 1 and 2, while progressing with cable patterns"? I believe that means keep alternating those two rows, except you move up a row of the charts each row. So on row 3 you'll follow the instructions for row 1, but work row 3 of the cable charts A, B, and C, and on row 4 you'll follow the instructions for row 2, but work row 4 of the cable charts ... etc. And then when you get to row 11 (and 21, 31, etc.) you'll be starting over with row 1 on the cable charts.
Does that make any sense? I'm just starting too, so maybe someone who's done it already can confirm!

I'm not sure where you are in the pattern but I think that what it means is, for any pattern - not just the CPH:

If you happen to be increasing every 7 rows, then increase every 7 rows but remember to be knitting the cable pattern at the same time - like Hilary said to continue to repeat the row patterns.

Or if you are suppose to be knitting until you reach a certain length - say 12 inches, don't forget to repeat the cable row as necessary.

It's been awhile since I've knit this and I don't have the pattern in front of me. Hope I haven't confused you!

Another way of looking at this is that you are repeating a 10 row pattern. Row 1 = Row 1, Row 2 = Row 2, Row 3 = Row 1 including cables from the chart, Row 4 = Row 2, Row 5 = Row 1, Row 6 = Row 2, Row 7 = Row 1, Row 8 = Row 2, Row 9 = Row 1 and Row 10 = Row 2. At Row 11 you start the series over again.
I'm in the early stages of my sweater as well. Hope this helps.
