Here it is, the ultimate cabled sweater...Rogue. I love this sweater, I love the Celtic cables on it, I love the waist shaping, I love the way it knits up so easily because Jenna wrote the directions SO WELL. I can't wait for the weather to change so I can wear it again. Did I mention I love Rogue? I knit it from Jo Sharp's Silkroad Aran (merino, cashmere, and silk - take a moment to ponder the yummyness) in Quartz, the same smokey violet color as in the picture. I did not do the kangaroo pocket because I'm not a person who uses a kangaroo pocket and I decided I didn't need a double layer of sweater on my tummy. In my opinion, Rogue is the perfect combination of stockinette and something else (in this case, cables). There are enough cables to make it interesting to knit and enough stockinette that it knits up very quickly. I will probably knit Rogue again at some point, probably using Claudia's cardigan mods just for something different. If you've never knit Rogue, go get some yarn (KnitPicks Wool of the Andes and Andean Silk should both get you gauge and are very reasonably priced), download the pattern and go for it. Its a very well written pattern and you'll love the sweater!

I fell in love with Rogue last month when I came across it, and hopefully will be working on in within this lifetime! You did a wonderful job on yours and I love the color you picked!

Yummy color. I wanted to do mine in a purple, but with the price I got on the yarn, I just had to get what they had. I like the wine color I am doing mine in. But oh to do those cables in any purple would be an even better time than I am having now. Yours looks fantastic! Thanks for the tip on the yarn. I am sure, if I can get through this one, that it is worth repeating.

Beautiful Rogue. I bought Peace Fleece to knit mine this year, after wanting to make one for years.

Rogue is beautiful. If you want a cardigan why not try her Eris? It looks good, too.
