Knitting: Dyed Cabled Pullover for Lesotho

Since I've memorized the raglan pullover pattern for these sweaters, I decided to try a few more radical changes.


For this sweater, I added a cable ("Stitch Plait", p.114 of The Knitting Stitch Bible) down the front.




I also dyed the entire sweater when it was done, simply because it was a dull grey. I used six packets of Orange Kool-Aid for this one, and the camera just doesn't do it justice.


You can see a little more of the orange highlights in this photo, but it's still not the same as seeing it in real life. I'm very pleased with how it turned out!

I'd never guess this was homemade...you did a super job! Love the cable stitch down the front!
