Modifications: substituted worsted weight yarn for double-stranded fingering weight; changed stitch pattern in body; narrowed and shortened sleeves; shortened yoke. For detailed explanations of my mods, see my earlier entries, here and here and, yes, here.
I'm a bit surprised that I blogged so much about this sweater. I usually just mention a project when I start it, then blog about it when it is done. I guess I just became obsessed by the thrill of creating something different.
I will say, though, that it is very clingy. I'll have to be careful what I wear under it.
This is a good shot of the side cable. See how it diminishes and grows, then diminishes again for the yoke? All the body shaping is done in the four side cables. That made it easier to seam, since there were no increases and decreases to try to line up in the side seam.
I'm trying to come up with a new name for my version...
