Orlando Ajoure & Cable Sweater

(real photos coming soon)

Orlando Ajoure & Cable Sweater from a free pattern at elann.com (originally from Spring/Summer 2003 issue of ONline Magazine)
ONline Linie 15 - Orlando [39% cotton/39% acrylic/22% nylon] (wide ribbon)
color: 002, Faded Denim
9 balls
US 15
small (6-8)
Converted to knit the body in round up to armhole to avoid having a seam in the middle of the lacy side panel. I knit the sleeves in round for the same reason. I knit the cuffs flat, but grafted them together to avoid a seam there.
July 2005
I normally don't really like working with ribbon, but when I saw this sweater on elann's web site, it just called out to me. I really like how it came out. It's great for a cool summer evening with a camisole.
Also, I liked working with this ribbon. It was very soft and fabric-like and pleasant to work with.

Hi I love this sweater but I am having a problem figuring it out. The pattern is not very clear about how many stitches you need to increase in the cable panel. I can't figure out how to get the pattern across 60 cast on stitches. If you can help I would be grateful. Thank you Gina Vancouver Canada
