This might be why I shouldn't cast on at the pub

I fell in love with the Millwater cowl because of it's elegant, slinky cables. When I knit them up they were more short, cute and stumpy. I thought maybe my gauge was off, but I measured it and it was spot on. Then I looked at the pattern again and realised I've misread it. I'm doing the cable crosses twice as often as I should. I've used exactly half the yarn, and am tossing up between ripping it back or keeping going exactly as I am been but I am leaning towards knitting the second half as per the pattern, so when doubled up around my neck I will get both effects. Or maybe that will look ridiculous, I don't know. What do you think?

  1. I like the idea of both, I think that's a great option.
