Japanese Vogue Sweater

I cast off last night and am pleased with the outcome (though I definitely need to lose some weight so I can look svelter in this). I've posted the details previously, but the pattern in the book is simply labeled "Raglan Sweater". It's not a complicated pattern, being primarily stockinette, but the cabled rib front panel provides nice visual interest. I could have stood to make the sleeves a little longer for my simian arms, as it turns out, but I'm pretty okay with the length.

It's Cascade 220 heathers. I had enough left over to make my dog a sweater, too, though I'm making his a bit fancier.
