I've taken apart a number of finished cardis (hip length)...woven ends and all...that I'd worn but didn't like. The fact that I'd made them made undoing them easier. (Knew where to look for woven ends, seaming yarns, etc.)
I frogged the entire sweater I started and had hours of work done on. I already completed 2 repeats, but I was getting the sts wrong on the motif up the side- so. . . frogged! About I guess it was about 20 rounds.
I was about 2/3 through an Icarus shawl and I frogged it. there was a really small mistake close to the beginning that I found several rows later and I just couldn't deal with it so I frogged. I've also frogged an entire finished sock once because I decided I wasn't happy with how the colors pooled. So, I frogged and re-CO with a different gauge and got striping I was MUCH happier with.

AN ENTIRE SWEATER! Last winter I made a top down raglan pullover out of some really nice cashmere. I checked my guage and it was spot on. So I blithely knitted away. I got to the ribbing at the bottom and realiwed it was HUGE. I could have fit two of me int it. So I frogged it.
I've frogged both a child's sweater and an adult's sweater (at different times). It made me mad, but with the mistakes I'd made (well, the child's sweater it was that it didn't fit properly), I couldn't leave them as is.
