Just finished this one yesterday!

The pattern is Rambling Rose, which is in Rowan #39.
The pattern was easy to follow, if not a little boring because of the mainly stockinette/ribbing knitting. There's only that little panel on the left for something interesting. I didn't put the roses on it because when I did, they stood out like gigantic warts when you turn to one side. I think it looks alright without Smiley

I knitted it with Bendigo 5ply Classic (a bit heavier than required, and not cotton either eek), in colour Cranberry.

It took little over a month and a bit..

OMG this is beautiful on so many levels.  First the colour (when I hear the word 'cranberry' I think of the drink and become thirsty  Cheesy); and the rose design is gorgeous - what patience you must have.  I can't knit yet (unless you count squares but it's a start) so am very impressed.  Well done.  P.S. Can this be done with long sleeves as well? Just asking out of curiosity.

amazing job- I love your colors.  this has been in my to do list for awhile, but I read the pattern and look at that little ribbing and just.... move on.  you're inspiring me to go back to it.  your cranberry and rose together are beautiful.  Smiley
