Milo ~ Substituting cables in the larger sizes
This tutorial offers information for substituting wider cables in the new larger sizes of the Milo for those wishing to achieve a similar aesthetic to the smaller sizes.
CABLE SUBSTITUTION OPTION ONE
The simplest substitution is to use the existing cable options but double their size, working a cable panel of 20 stitches and working each stitch in the pattern as two. For example, where it reads p2 work p4 and work C4B as C8B. Adjusting in this manner, should work for the majority of the cables included in the pattern except for the Giant Cable, I perhaps wouldn't use this method for that one.
It would be a good idea to swatch the cable prior to knitting to ensure that you are happy with the way the cable looks in the bigger format.
CABLE SUBSTITUTION OPTION TWO
The second option for substitution is to use a pre-existing wider cable stitch pattern. Look for a panel that is ideally between 18 and 26 stitches wide to maintain the look of the smaller Milo, but as is always the case with modifying a Milo - experiment.
When choosing a cabe panel, look for one that looks good when the panel is inverted; as Milo is knit top down, the panel will appear "upside down" on the garment. Cable panels with imagery such as hearts or owls that rely on a directional knit won't work unless you re-work the stitch pattern.
A couple of cable panels that would work well include:
Four Band Knot
Double Braided Cable
ADJUSTING WIDTH TO CATER FOR WIDER CABLES
Substituting with a wider cable panel will affect the overall finished chest measurement. To counteract this, it is suggested that for approximately every 6 additional cable panel stitches worked, increase a stitch under each arm.
