I finished my Tangled Yoke in time to wear it out for New Year's Eve. I really like how it turned out and I love the buttons, which I found in a special box at a fabric store with 70 year old European glass buttons.

I finished my Tangled Yoke Cardi! Here are a few pics:

The color of the yarn is closer to the first picture than the one with the buttons. You can read more about it on my blog here. I love it!

Another Tangled Yoke...

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.

Questin About Set-up Row

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.
