Ribbed back finished

I finished the back of the cardi last week, does it take longer to knit ribbing for anyone else? Thankfully the front pieces are knitting up a bit quicker.

It looks great ribbed and yes, it's taking me awhile to do the ribbing too...someone said earlier it took them 3 hours to do 11 inches...2 hours later and I have about 3......LOL But then again, I don't profess to be a faster knitter either but I'm not exactly slowwww...

Wow... I'm so impressed by how much you've gotten done!

Thanks for the comment about the ribbing taking longer. I've noticed it takes longer to do ribbing (I just can't get into any sort of rhythm), but I hadn't factored that in to which version I want to do.

Granted, I was alredy planning on doing the plain panel version, but you knocked any doubts about that away. Thanks :)

Thanks for posting the photo of the ribbing! I love the camel color you've chosen. Ok, so after seeing this, I think I might like the ribbing for the back, but I don't know about the front...would it be totally weird to have a ribbed back and a plain front? Ideas anyone?

My thoughts on a ribbed back and plain panel front...go for it! I think there's enough flexibility built into this pattern to do whatever you want! If you decide you don't like the plain panel in the front after you've done a bit, you can always frog it and start again. I know forgging is no fun but why not go with what you want and see even if it means frogging?

I'm also thinking of doing the ribbed back and panel front. Let me know how you have got on! I have almost finished the back and can not wait to start a sleeve as I want to get more of an idea of how my colour combo is going to work!

Yes and the ribbing is taking me hours too!
