I began the CPH in November, before I really knew how to read a chart.
So, I read the chart backwards and my center cables twist the opposite way than they should. I just recently cast on the sleeves and I have done one cable twist-- like the wrong cables on the back.
So my question is: Should I make the sleeve cables the correct way or to match the back of my sweater?

Thanks guys!

I would match the back of the sweater.
So your cables are going the opposite way of the pattern - who cares? A pattern is only a suggestion or guideline as far as I'm concerned.
Whichever way you choose to do your sleeve cables
I would make sure that both sleeves are done the same way.

I don't think it really matters which way the cables turn, as long as there is consistency.

That's what I love about cables actually.. being able to twist them however you want :) I did that on a sweater recently.. twisted the opposite the pattern because I just liked it better that way!

Anyway, if it were me, I'd make things match the back :)

Thank you so much! I'm excited about getting back down to business with my CPH!!!

I did the same thing! I didn't notice until halfway up the back because it doesn't look wrong. I went with it. I haven't gotten to the front or sleeves yet, so would love to hear how the experiment works for you.
