I worked on this sweater over the winter and I do mean worked. The full back was actually knit twice! It's a fun knit from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2012 with lots going on. The yarn is Cascade Superwash Chunky.

That's gorgeous! I think it would take me a couple of years to complete that project!

Thanks, JPC. There are buttons down the front. We have a wonderful button department at the local sewing store, G Street Fabrics. They make every project a "consultation" over exactly the right button. Such a fun store.

Goregous!!!!!.. Maybe someday I will be able to make something so pretty. I like the color and always wished I could wear reds. Doesn't work with a red head's skin tones so stick with the blues, greens, browns.
Again lovely work!!!

It's gorgeous, Salmonac! Reminds me of the NELL 3/4 jacket that I worked on for months and months as well! I love the color of your cabled jacket! Plus, the interesting pattern stitches are anything but blah!

Kudos to you! And thanks so much for sharing your work with us! I think it's inspiring to see what you're up to!
