Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

What would you do.....?
I fell in love with this pattern so much that I actually bought the book. The recommended yarn is Rowan Wool Cotton which costs an arm and a leg. But it receives such good reviews that I treated myself to some in French Navy. I love it....it is my new best friend! It is a pleasure to knit with and I am actually limiting myself to a few rows per day as I am enjoying it so much. I also don't need this top until next spring and I have other things on the go. But they are just secondary reasons.
Now, this is where I need your advice. The pattern has a very eye-catching cable panel up the front of the top. It also has it up the back. I like it on the back. It would be very plain otherwise and it actually gives a very slimming impression! The question I have for all you experts is:
if you saw someone wearing this with the cable panel on the back, would you think she had her top on back to front?
I really would be interested to hear what you would do. Back pattern or no back pattern? I have nearly reached the point where I need to make the decision.......help!! All comments gratefully received.
