I recently completed a cabled poncho that is on the cover of the most recent Rowan Magazine.  I used Cascade yarn and sized down the needles a bit - it took about a month to knit.  I love this so much!

thanks ladies!  Cheesy  The pattern is really nice - and it really wasn't that hard to make!  The worst part was when you are first working with the chart, but once you figure out the pattern, it isn't so bad.

That is beautiful!  I really like the look of big cables, and want to try... but think I might just myself a little confused!

@trekky - I literally wrote out what each symbol of the chart meant and after a few rows, you get the hang of the pattern.  Smiley

That is beautiful! I love the color you've chosen, too. I can't imagine knitting something like that!
