Debbie Bliss cabled jacket

The back of the jacket is complete, and it used a lot less yarn than I thought it would - I've probably got enough yarn to make two jackets! Apart from the errors in the pattern, it was an ok knit. I don't usually work by charting it out as I prefer written instructions, but I would suggest that anyone coming up to the decreases should chart it as it can be complicated. I have knit this using addi turbo circulars and would recommend them as its a very heavy jacket and would be far too heavy on straights.
I have to say, I lurrve Cashmerino Superchunky, what a pleasure to knit with. In fact, all of Debbie Bliss' cashmere yarns are to die for.

I wore River today... I think I'm gonna make another one, I just love it.

All of your knits are just beautiful. The cashmerino jacket is lovely. Beautiful stitch detail. Can't wait to see the stole! I went to Venice a year and a half ago...just loved it. You are so lucky. Have a blast :0)

Very yum. The stitch definition is wonderful and love that purple.
