Bobby's Vintage Aran Pattern

Continuing from HERE.

I'll post the pattern as I go along...
I'm making a size 38" bust. My tension is 24.5 sts and30 rows per 10cm with Jaggerspun Heather 3/80 wool. I'm an average knitter.


With 3mm needles, Cast On 277 sts.

Begin cabled ribbing at Row 4.

Cable Pattern:

Row 1: P1, *K3, P1, K1 into back of stitch, P1, K1 into back of stitch, P1*, repeat from * to * until last stitch, P1. (34 repeats).

Row 2: K1, *P3, K1, P1 into back of stitch, K1, P1 into back of stitch, K1+, repeat from * to * until last stitch, K1.

Rows 3 and 4: Repeat Rows 1 and 2.

Row 7: P1, *K3, P1, Slip next 2 stitches onto cable needle and hold at front of work, K1 into back of stitch, Twist cable needle and P1 from cable needle, K1 from cable needle, P1*, repeat from * to * until last stitch, P1.

Row 8: Same as row 2.

Continue until you have made 5 repeats of Row 7 (the twisty row), then work 3 more rows. You will have made 3 rows past the last twisty row.

Or however long you want your ribbing.
Note: With the pics, this is how I did the cable and if you look closely you'll see I wasn't actually up to the cabling row (I'd finished them)... hope it helps and doesn't just confuse!
