Could be really great with some modsI enjoyed this pattern, I love seeing the purl stitches with the cabled columns! However, there was a problem with the decrease stitch wording. It took some time to figure out, and needs to be reworded to avoid future problems. The decreases should be reference to the center front edge and not from the side edge (as it is in the setting up decrease rows). This prevents the main cable pattern from being broken up and prevents a lot of confusion. Also, a button band that's included in the pattern instead of seen on after is helpful, reducing the amount of seaming to be done. Overall a good pattern, could be great if the decreases are corrected.
I'm currently working on this pattern and have tore it out several times. My question is when I place the marker to start my decrease 1 stich it's cutting into the cable pattern. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I had the same problems, had to look at a bunch of other projects to figure it out. The first decrease rows are very poorly written, if you're making a smaller size (I'm doing 6-12 months), the first decreases are right in the middle of the main cable pattern. Silly. If you read the next line and look at projects, the decreases need to occur on the stitch just before the CB2 column that's closest to the front edge. (22 stitches in from center front edge). If you do this, the front cable is intact and the decreases happen on the purl/CB2 cabled portions.
