Congratulations on selling to VK! And commiserations on how they (mis)described your design. I have to admit that when I saw this photo in the 'zine, I didn't consider makng it, because I couldn't figure it out from the photo and lack of a schematic. However, now after seeing your post and photos, I'm seriously interested. Gorgeous!

BTW -- what yarn would YOU recommend?

Oops, just found your later post on suggested yarns for this sweater. Thank you!

Angela, this sweater is stunning. It's literally the only thing that's ever made me want to learn to do cabling and other more complicated patterns! (I am a generally lazy knitter, and I prefer not to have to think too much about where I am in a pattern.) I do have one question--does Vogue realize that the yarn called for has been discontinued by Trendsetter? I found that odd--I did see that you've given suggestions for substitutions, so thanks for that. Clearly, it'll be necessary information to have. Anyway, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

You mention that the garment will be very heavy if knit in the suggested alpaca yarn. I'm curious whether you chose this yarn or if VK chose it. I think it would be ideal someplace that actually got cold.

But I live in NC and if I knit this in alpaca, it would be way too warm 345 days of the year, while it's beautiful enough to wear all winter! I was wondering if one could knit a lighter yarn at a looser gauge, (e.g. Berocco's Ultra Alpaca or even Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool -- knit at 16 st = 4" instead of the label gauge) -- that would make the garment less heavy, more breathable, and I think the drape would work with this design. What do you think? Any other suggestions?

Hi, I found your beautiful design through Ravelry. I love the construction and all the cables. Congratulations on having your first pattern published!

Complimenti per le bellissime cose che riesci a creare! Seguo da tanto tempo il tuo blog. Ho cercato nelle varie edicole di Como (la mia citta') Vogue Knitting ma e' una rivista che nessuno tiene. Tu sai dirmi dove devo andare per comperarla?

I've had this issue and looked through it... I never would have looked twice at this pattern until I just stumbled onto your site here... I LOVE it! Vogue doesn't do it justice. This is a very cool wrap/sweater.

So glad tp have found you Angela. Was disappointed at lack of info in Vogue or on Ravelry (!) Am certainly going to give your lovely and innovate jacket a try.

I just discovered this beautiful pattern (a friend sent the link of your blog) and I think is fantastic, just what I needed for this fall. I'm pregnant and I wanted to knit something I can use later and with this construction you can adjust it to your body very easily. Thank you, now I have to get that magazine.

Your pictures are very helpful. I saw this and was intrigued. I went back through my old copies of Vogue for the pattern. I never would have considered it the way they presented it. I am planning to try it in Debbie Bliss alpaca silk aran and think it will be beautiful. Thanks Suzan
