My Tangled Yoke Cardigan is finally finished:
- Yarn: I used Elsbeth Lavold's Silky Wool instead of the Rowan Felted Tweed. I love the weight and feel of this yarn, and the gauge was spot on.
- Modifications: I made the body a couple of inches longer than the pattern called for -- I prefer my sweaters to hit a bit lower than the waist. Other than that I pretty much knit as-is.
All in all I'm really happy with the end result.

Happy New Year! I have a question about the set-up for for the tangled yoke. I'm right up to the point where I will be starting the set up row for the cable portion, but I'm confused about the 5-in-1 increases. Since this is on the purled side of the knit, would I still do the increases in a knit stitch? Or a purl stitch? I'm assuming that I would do them as the pattern says (knit) but that sounds kind of wrong to me.
