Cable Luxe Maxi

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

18 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles.
22 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in cable patterns with larger needles. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Cable Luxe Maxi Reviewed by Noga Tarnopolsky on 2011-03-11 *****
I loved, loved, loved this pattern. I made it with a Swedish Matt-Garn yarn, and wanted it to be a shorter dress with shorter sleaves, but still a dress. I am thrilled with how it turned out!
