Playing around with tweedy yarn and a cable idea from my imagination, I came up with the design at left. It was fine, but I wasn't wowing myself.
Knitting this cable up definitely felt like an accomplishment, but once I had translated the chart to written instructions, I felt confident that anyone who understands the basic concept of cabling can be successful with the pattern I'm planning to write.
I submitted my proposal to the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program today, and if they accept it, I'll be using their City Tweed HW yarn for this pullover. If not, I may use Plymouth Encore Worsted Tweed instead (it's what I made the swatch out of.) I think either yarn would be a good match for the look I'm wanting to achieve.
