From what I can tell (small pic, bad monitor) it looks like a great sweater.  Where did you find it?  (I've never heard of Delphine Wilson...  sorry!)

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

If you search for her in google, the first link is her website, and there you can skim through the seasonal collections and see larger pics of the sweaters.  That one is in one of the older collections.  It's really very cool.  The sleeves and front were knit straight across, and the back must have been added.  I'm not sure how she gets the cables to spiral on the arms, but I'm sure it's a matter of something like bias knitting.  And then, I presume, after the front is knit across and the back is added, you can pick up stitches around the bottom and knit down in ribbing until you have the length you want.

Sometimes I post at Lothruin.com!

i definitely agree that the top was knitted across with the bottom picked up and knitted down.  when looking at the larger pic (on her site), it looks to me like the top may have been knitted as a tube (dpn's/circ's), but i am not sure about the top cable.  it looks like it may have been picked up & knitted...  ...  i don't think it was add on later, as the cable runs down both sleeves.
with the neckline as it is, i am wondering if the back isn't more open, with the cable bordering the open area & circling down the sleeve with the main cable...  like a v-neck in reverse maybe.  i know she likes the asymmetrical look for her things, so it may be just that...
hmmm.  definitely an all winter project here!
