Of course I was attracted by the cable work. And I cannot tell you exactly why, but it did not appeal to me whatsoever... Until I saw this version...
EDIT: if you are interested in knitting this version, here are the main changes:
- It is knitted in Cascade Eco Alpaga in Ecru (5 skeins)
- Knitted one size bigger than your usual size
- The armholes were changed as well: knitted straight, and the stitches are picked up and sleeves knitted in the round (so much easier!).
And this is why, although in theory I am not supposed to buy more yarn if I have not finished a project, there is yarn on its way... And I cannot wait to cast on. I just hope my version will be as wearable. I stopped at making a cream version as well, but the colour will not be that far from that... Such a copycat. As long as I get a jumper that I will wear! who cares!
