I am on a second complete re-do of this project. It was a bit above my skill level but after this I would say my KSA (knitting survival ability) has dramatically increased after the adventures I have had with this. My problem is that when you pick up around the edges you are starting on a corner and there is nothing in the pattern to address that. Or I am missing something. (Lack of clarity in written directions). I LOVE the chart but had to add some of my own hints to it so I didn't have to keep looking things up.This was going to be a gift but I have spent so much time on it, and i do LOVE the cable pattern, that I think I will keep it.

I am a little bit overwhelmed by the chart for this pattern. Personally, I prefer written instructions so I expect to have some trouble with this one.

The cable border is fine to do as long as you can get your head around picking up 194 stitches down the long sides (!) and understand the "wrap and turn" element. It's true that the written part of the pattern instructions are not very clear for less experienced knitters and the chart is a bit mind-boggling. It's definitely worth persisting for the end result, though.

This has been a wonderful challenge for me. The middle part is easy, the cables are time consuming but turned out beautiful. Now the corners, took a bit of frogging and redoing. Finally found a few helpful videos explaining in more detail how to knit up the corners. using short rows. Just finished my second corner without any problems.

This is a gorgeous pattern but the chart for the corner is very hard to read, making it very frustrating. I don't even know if I'll be able to finish this project. I'm super disappointed.
