LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this pattern. I am a fairly novice knitter. Until one month ago I only knew the knit stitch...couldn't even purl! This worked up so quickly and easily. I tracked row counts on an index card and YouTubed how to cable and picot cast off. The BEST part is because it's short, it gives instant gratification! a 3.5 hour project for a slow poke like me. Made three in a week, all given as gifts. My best friend's response, "It's exquisite, THANK YOU!"
