Here is my Rogue sweater. I knit it in a smaller gauge than called for and should have gone up a size. It is a bit short, a bit tight and the hood is merely decorative (too small to wear without looking like an idiot). I think it is still pretty wearable, though! This was my first sweater that was not a top-down raglan and seaming the sleeves took me for ever to figure out, but it worked out ok! Yarn was Cascade 220.

It's so great to get rapid praise, thanks!

The hood wasn't hard until it came to the top. You have to graft (kitchener) the cable part together, and I had never kitchenered anything except straight stockinette. I had to experiment to get the sequence right so it looked seamless. I wasn't exactly difficult, but tedious. About an hour of ripping and re-doing for a 4-inch seam, but it was actually interesting to figure out!

Wow, that's fantastic. Even though the hood doesn't fit, it's my favorite Rogue so far. Love the color and fit.

Excellent job! Fab detail with the cabling. The body fits beautifully....any chance slight blocking of just the hood might enlarge it a tad?

Thanks for all the kind comments!

Tutu Carol, the pattern is called Rogue and it can be found at www.girlfromauntie.com (http://www.girlfromauntie.com). The designer is Jenna Wilson. She also did the chemo cap called Shedir that you can find on knitty.com. I had been knitting about a year when I did it. I did the Shedir cap first and that gave me the confidence to attempt it. There are some goof-ups but they don't show much. I used Cascade 220 which has nice stitch definition and is quite springy which helped a lot when crossing a lot of cables!
