    I am curious as to why the pattern is on the wrong side of the stockinette. Looks strange to me. Could you do the pattern on the right side also?
    I noticed that your cable patterns are on the “wrong side”.

      Most cable patterns are knit on reverse stockinette to help them pop out. You could do them on regular stockinette, but the won’t be as well defined.
