Modelled by an early morning bed haired, shiny faced me.
I did not knit in the gauge specified, I used two strands of 8 ply on 8mm needles, I did 14 rpts of the cable pattern but it still didn't get up to 23 inches. I felt this was long enough for me. It knitted up quickly and depending on where you place the buttons you can make it sit a little differently I think this will be great to wear with things that have no collar and when wearing a heavy coat.
I have found it really hard to capture the true colour, I'll try again a bit later and update the pics if I have any luck. Its chocolate and caramel with some pale pink in it. ( then maybe I won't look quite so white either - ah, who am I trying to kid. lol)
