It reminded me of Jabba when I wear it with the 3 roll look, but it can also be worn just rolled over once to look like a turtleneck or just bunched loosely.  It's very soft and warm.  I might make armwarmers to match.

Cute! What are the deets for this>? What yarn did you use? It also looks like a simple ribbing.

It's really sweet! I wonder if I could do this on DPNs...

Thanks for the nice comments.  I didn't use a pattern - just cast on 80 sts. on size 5 mm. (U.S. size 8 ) circular needles.  They're short - 50 cm. (20 inches) or you could use dpn's.  I did a 4 x 4 rib and added cables every 12 rows or so.  It knits up very quickly, especially on the circular needles.  I used Paton's Glittallic - yes, it's polyester or something fake, but it feels really nice and soft.
