I need help to figure out Row 19 in the Cable Pattern. Can anybody let me know the sequence? I am new to knitting cables and unable to figure it out by myself. Thank you very much for your efforts!! HELP!! )

I see the Cable Pattern Chart which has Row 19. Thank you for posting this. I am excited to continue with this gorgeous Cardigan! )

i do like the pattern just started making this for my daughter in law for christmas. i noticed in the cable pattern instructions row 19 is missing. all it says is p2, T5B then the rest is blank. i think i can work it out but wanted to point this out.

Hi, I am new to cable knitting and was wondering if you have Row 19 in the Cable pattern figured out? I would appreciate anyone helping me with this row so I can continue the sweater. Thank you!

Did anyone ever answer you? Did you figure it out? I don't want to start until I know I have this information? Thank you.

Best name for this cardigan would seem to be - A Cable Cuddle, looks really snuggly and comfy. Pauline Harriman

Persimmon Zest Cable Delight

Autumn Glory or October Glory

The cable work is so beautiful, so I'd call it Cablecar named Desire

I would love to wear this! The shirt look is bound to be a forever sweater. That is why I would name it Indian Summer Classic. I have'nt made it, but I like it so well, I might have someone else do the work (since I tend NOT to finish projects.}

Love the styling on this cardigan! Its cables remind me of grapevines, so I suggest the name "Winery Tour Cardigan". Would love to wear it for a tour and tasting!!

I would call the pattern PUMPKIN HARVEST CABLE CARDIGAN.

My name suggestion, Pumpkin Patch. The color represents the pumpkins and the cable pattern is the pumpkin vines intertwined.

I love the look and would like to try making it for myself. I would name it "Preppy".

Sweetie-Pie

Comfort in cables is my thought.
