After slogging through figuring out the chart corrections, then researching corrections to the corrections of the left/right sleeve cables (thanks to all of you!) I have determined that I don't like how this sweater is turning out. I'm partway into the second diamond and the start of the sleeve cable.
Here's my biggest rub....my raglan increases don't match. It has something to do with them meeting the reverse stockinette. On the lines where you kfb into a purl stich, then purl that increase on subsequent rows, there isn't a nice stacked line of stockinette increases. It almost creates little holes. I have studied your picture posts closely and it appears that everyone's does this. It doesn't bother me so much when I view your progress....maybe if I finished the thing it would be so minor it wouldn't bother me like it does now. But I really don't want to continue all that knitting and find that yes, I still hate it.
Is it just me? Did I miss something in the directions to prevent this?
I'm considering two things, both of which involve a lot of frogging as step one! Then...placing a few more knit stiches before the center diamond cables on the sleeves to make the raglan line bordered by stockinette on both sides, (I haven't actually figured out if there is enough "room" to do this at the top of the shoulders) and eliminating the secondary cables on the sleeves. OR eliminating the center diamond cable on the sleeve entirely, and start the secondary cable at the same point that they begin at the waist shaping.
Thoughts? You are all doing beautiful work. I am getting irritated with myself, which means I need to take a different path instead of continuing down this road!
