Cabled Shawl Collar Sweater w/Pocket

Cabled Shawl Collar Sweater w/Pocket

Cabled Pullover with Kangaroo-Pockets and Shawl Collar
Pattern: Vogue Knitting, Winter 2003/04, #11* (designed by Anna Sui)
Fiber: Rowan Polar (60% wool, 30% alpaca, 10% acrylic); one strand; 9 balls

*Corrections were posted for this pattern about a week after I finished. I was impatient and figured it out for myself, using the magazine photo and my limited knowledge as a guide (at least I'd done cables before!). I frogged a lot, but I was determined!

I'm not sure if these issues are addressed in the corrections: You may want to start the cap shaping of the sleeves a little sooner than 20" (the schematic is more useful than the printed instructions) and think about knitting pocket stitches from the holder at the appropriate time.
