Finished Cabled Spiral Pullover

Here's my Cabled Spiral Pullover finished. I have made some modifications to the body, but the yoke, turtleneck and sleeves are knitted exactly according to the pattern. I had no problems with the instructions or the chart. The yarn, however, wasn't the best choice for cabling. It's cashmere from Pinnsvindesign.

Edited to answer question about waist shaping: I wrote above that I have made "some modifications to the body", but that's an understatement! I have used a basic fitted sweater pattern from 1000 Sweaters by Amanda Griffiths, and knitted it a couple of sizes too small, to achieve negative ease.

I made a few false starts before I found the rights size and gauge, but once I reached the yoke it was smooth sailing. There are more posts in my blog, here, here and here.

Gorgeous!! Geat job. You should be very proud :) And in CASHMERE!

Looks like you added some waist shaping? I was bit put off from this one pattern, despite the beautiful yoke, because it looked at bit frunmpy in the midsection.
