I'm looking for a pattern for a sweater with a wide ribbed collar, cables and a belt.  In my mind it would overlap for a few inches and therefore have shaping?

And yes, I've seen Starsky at knitty.com. I'm not a fan of the motif and I want it to overlap a little more and be cozier looking.

Does anyone know of anything? I'm kind of craving this sweater and feeling desperate.

I have a bag of rowan polar in terms of yarn but  any gauge would be fine: I don't have a problem buying more yarn.

I would just Starsky as a jumping off point, which would work with the chunky weight yarn you have. It is not hard to use Starsky as a guideline for shaping and change the cable pattern to one that suits you better. I'm thinking about making it, but I wasn't sure how I felt about the banana tree pattern. For more overlap, just cast on more stitches on your 2 front sides, right? you'd just have to remember how many more you cast on and incorporate them at the end when you get rid of them.

There was a really pretty jacket in the most recent VK.  Let me see if there's a picture on the site...

You could take some elements from this'un and the starsky, maybe?

I know this isn't exactly what you were looking for, but I saw it and loved it then thought of this post.

You could always add a collar, and make it more fitting, and the stitching around the waist adds the intrest of a belt without having to tie it all the time.  Just had to share this one b/c I'm in love with it!  good luck!
