Lost & Found: Rowan Denim Voyage

When I was trying to decide what to do with the discoloring cabled sleeve, I was fishing around in the stash and look what I found!

This was my Olympic project that never happened. I had finished the back and the right front. I cast on for the left front, which went really quickly. I suppose that my skill level has increased, because this is no longer a difficult knit.

Rowan denim is a cotton yarn that is overdyed--you can already see the changing colors in the yarn. I like the look of the cables.

Here's a look at the pattern:

The sleeve construction is interesting. You separate the cast on to make the cuff (complete with button holes and flap). Then you join the stitches and leave the sleeve seam open. Pretty interesting!
