Changes to Silver Belle.

I read Estonian craft forum today where women discussing over back cables of the Silver belle.
'Kiusupunn' said she will leave out the back cables in next cardy because they don't hold well.

So I did a little trial :

Couldn't keep myself ;) and made a little tutorial as well : Three needle bind off.

But I didn't like the look of the seam either so riped it open again and will go for back cables.

And one other thing as well:

first time I saw the picture of Silver Belle the edges of sleeves looked so unfinished .
Already then had idea to add cable.
Here it is :
I casted on 7 stitches (1extra for sewing),knitted long cable and sewed it to sleeve.

EDIT: Great tutorial from olgajazzzy how to connect cable to sleeve's live stitches.

very smart!
i thought of adding something to mine if they were going to be too short...however they are the right length.
love the look of that!

That's a very good idea, with the cable on the edge of the sleeve, I might do that, too, because it really looks unfinished! Thank you for the suggestion! *^v^*

Loving all the tutorials and the sleeve came out cabley gorgeous.

The added cable on the sleeve end is simply genius! I'm going to do mine the same way. Thanks for the pix.

It's been a long time but I'm finally making this sweater. LOVE the cable as the cuff of the sleeves. Thanks for the great idea. Your sweater came out beautifully!
