There's been something that I've been meaning to show you:
Yeah, I love it. I haven't been this excited about a knit in a while. It's my new favorite summer knit. The shape: fantastic! The cables: beautiful! The yarn: delish! The fit: divine!
Yarn: Rowan Wool Cotton in Violet, colorway 933 (7 skeins for the largest size, but I tweaked the waist shaping and the collar, so you would use more yarn if you knit the pattern as written.)
What I changed: I added more waist shaping. With help from 1,000 Sweaters, I changed the turtleneck collar to the Nehru-esque version which you see in the photographs.
Would I knit this again: You betcha.
Should you knit this: See above answer.
