Pattern: Blue Monday Cabled Arm Wamers
Needles used: 4mm bamboo
Taking pictures of your own arm is really hard. lol. Please note at the topmost picture, my arm is slanting downwards.
I had to modify the pattern (for various reasons: yarn, needles, tension) to fit my arm. The circumference of my arm near the elbow is around 19cm / 7.5” and with 4mm needles, I had to cast on 51 stitches. The modified pattern is as follows:
Cast on 51 stitches.
Right side: 2k 3p 8k 3p 3k 3p 8k 3p 3k 3p 8k 3p 1k
Wrong side: Knit when you see knits and purl when you see purls
Do this 4 times, getting 8 rows in total.
9th row: 2k 3p (cable 4) 3p 3k 3p (cable 4) 3p 3k 3p (cable 4) 3p 1k
As you can see, all I did was add a stitch to each “section”. I’m not sure that a cable of 10 stitches is possible in a project like this, so I recommend you guys to use bigger needles if my modified pattern isn’t big enough. (note that I did mine on 4mm needles)
Anyway, this is a beautiful pattern and my new favourite accessory. :) I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try out cables.
