Note: In addition to customizing colors, stripe placement and stripe
width, you might also want to make the bottom end a bit wider if you
want more chest coverage. The easiest way to do that is to CO 112
stitches (or more) and do (K7, p7) around, then decrease to 96 sts
during the second repeat of the pattern. To do the cables, you can put
3 sts on the cable needle, and then work 4 sts before working the
stitches on the cable needle.
