Designed by Rohn Strong, Rosalind is the perfect cardigan for those
dipping their toe into the wonderful world of crochet cables.
Rowan Pure Wool Aran (Cedar)
Here's what Rohn had to say about it:
"This sweater really came about systematically. I wanted a crochet cardigan that was reminiscent of Chanel. I knew I needed the sweater to be tailored, fitted, with a bit of negative ease, and to give the jacket a bit of structure, some cables were thrown in. The cardigan is worked from the bottom up in pieces for even more structure. I chose Rowan Pure Wool Aran really because of the colour, but the structure of the yarn was strong enough for the cables and it bloomed beautifully after blocking. So it was a perfect fit!
I have to say out of all of my designs for Inside Crochet, this is probably my favorite. Aesthetically, it really captures and pleases me. I mean look at those shoulders! So beautiful!"

Dear Rohn, I really wanted to make this gorgeous cardigan. I bought the yarn, I spent a lot of time on it only to find there were errors in the pattern maybe from translating it, or maybe two patterns were mixed up.
These are the problems I have:
Back, the first cable row details 4rtrf (centre cable made). This centre cable is never referred to again, and so I used the photo to complete it. Later, after I also completed the fronts, I looked at my back properly and was dismayed to find the "centre cable" was not in the centre at all, and contrary to the photo which shows two cables either side of the centre cable, I had 6 cables from following the pattern and the "centre cable" is not centre at all, so I will have to unpick this and begin again.
In addition to this I am struggling with the sleeve instructions. I see the increase but was not certain if the rib effect carried on, I think so. I referred to the photos, the main photo does not show any ribbing on the sleeves at all. So I turned back to the next page feeling puzzled, and there is an insert photo close up of the ribbed cuff.
There are other discrepancies, for example the photo of the fronts shows an addition cable going up to the sleeve shaping which is not in the instructions, not really a problem but the other discrepancies are.
Please can someone help with this? I have messaged the magazine asking for your original US pattern to see if I can salvage something and finish my cardigan but I have had no reply.
