KAL Annie MaloneyComing This Fall – For Ravelry users, join a KAL featuring several stitch patterns from the Cable Factor pdf series. “This KAL is for a pieced, richly cabled throw, of the sampler variety. The stitch patterns are from The Cable Factor Series stitch collections. There are opportunities for variations in the finished size, by using fewer blocks than given, or a different weight of yarn. If using all of the blocks as in the sample, the full throw in light worsted weight measures 48” x 60”, and uses almost 3000 yards, on 4.5mm / US7 needles.”

From the author…
“This collection consists of cable stitch patterns that have mirrored sides; for example, a left-crossing cable on one side is mirrored by a right-crossing cable in the corresponding position on the other side. The center treatment is a challenging aspect of designing this type of pattern, because if stitches are crossed in a specific direction, it negates the fact that the patterning is mirrored everywhere else.

There are four methods used in the cable designs:

  • Bring the cable units together, and separate them without crossing them;
  • The Cluster Stitch, in which the stitches are wrapped with the working yarn rather than crossed;
  • Knotted Cables, where the cables are crossed either to the right or left, behind the knot itself, so a definite direction is not apparent;
  • Mirrored panels, intended to be used on either side of a central panel or opening.”

NOTE: stitch patterns have both charts and written instructions.

Buying PDFs

  • If you have purchased both PDFs and hardcopy items (books, patterns, yarns), the PDF download is not immediate, as I have to manually ‘complete’ all orders with hard goods. If your order is placed after hours or on a weekend, you may have to wait a day for access to your PDFs.
  • For orders with only PDFs, after your order is paid for you will receive 2 automated emails. The first will list all your order details, the second will include in the subject line “is complete – download your files”. Click on the pattern name link in the email to download the pattern, and remember to save to your computer. (link is valid for 24 hours from purchase)
  • You will need Acrobat Reader to open and print pattern files.
  • Colour is used throughout some patterns and a colour printer is recommended.
  • Patterns are formatted for 8.5″ x 11″ paper.
  • For charts that are large, they are frequently printed in 2 sections on a page, which can be cut in half then taped together.
  • High speed Internet access is recommended as most patterns average in file size from 1 to 2 MB.
