Pattern Suggestion

I am just finishing my 2nd Cardi. While I was making the 1st one, I discovered that the Cable Panel is a lot smoother and less strained-looking if the cables are made using FPtr stitches and a front-post double treble on the crossed stitch, instead of the FPdc stitches. After all, the stitches are being made over 2 rows of hdc, and dc seems too tight for me. But I love the pattern and can't wait to finish the 2nd one - it's got long sleeves!
