As soon as I saw the pattern, I wanted to knit it. This cable panel from Creative Cables by Debbie Bliss made my heart skip a beat.

This week I decided I can’t wait any longer and started swatching.

I think this rich red color, which looks almost burgundy red in dark light, suits this pattern perfectly. The soft natural cotton is my choice again. I think I am a cotton addict.

The 2*2 ribbing seems too “busy” to me for this pattern, so I think I am going to stick to the basic stockinette stitch. In my opinion it will make the cable panel stand out more.

Well, I am starting! I’ll post more about the progress.
