  1. Maybe I’m blind, and please tell me if I am, but I can’t seem to find the cabling pattern. The pattern says repeat cable pattern, but I can’t find it. Please help, I’m up to that point int the pattern, and can’t go any further.

  2. The pattern is written for a preemie. The pattern states that it also comes in newborn and baby sizes. Can you tell me where I can find the baby size pattern?
    Thank you.
