amanda swatch - tried and true

My swatch for Amanda cardigan is predictable.  I'm using Cascade 220, a yarn I've knit with many times before.  I knew I'd need 4mm needles, but knit the swatch in honeycomb to be sure the cables worked.  I also want to knit this without a cable needle.  This swatch gave me a chance to try that out.  I used a tutorial from Grumperina's blog that made the front and back cabling make sense.  Easier than I anticipated!

Yes, that's an error on the left side - I did the wrong cable directions on the end one.  It's a swatch so I'm not ripping out to redo it.  Have to watch this when I'm working on the entire thing!  I'm going to feverishly work on my Snowdrift Shrug so that I can move ahead with the KAL over at Fringe Association.


  1. I do so love knitting with Cascade 220!. I love your swatch, btw.
