As long as you have the dexterity to stop yourself dropping the stitches, cable knitting is an insanely easy way of making your knitting projects look super-professional and difficult looking, and creating chunky, funky patterns. I'm very happy with the way the back of this turned out, and have started on the left front now.
I learned a number of new stitches from this pattern, and from the comments on it from the lady who designed it. When I've finished the jumper I'll swatch up again and show you my favourites in detail. For now - onward!
