I designed this sweater based on one I saw on Anthropologie.com (here's the inspiration:  http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?navAction=jump&id=19725464).  But after reading reviews, it's an unflattering a-line, so I made mine with a fitted waist.  I used Cascade Ecological Wool (2 skeins) and US 10 needles, circular/seamless from the bottom up.  It ended up being a pretty quick knit.  (Ravelry project page:  http://www.ravelry.com/projects/TheYarnBearer/bitter-end).

Very cute! And it does look much better with shaping Smiley

Are those small rope cables on the back or just columns of knit stitches?

They are just knit stitches, but twisted stitches would look nice, too.

I love the fitted look and long length. That's a really flattering jumper now.
