"Cables on the Blue Lagoon" Sweater

I love doing cables...
I was talking to someone about crocheted cables in the help forum on Crochetville when I pulled this sweater out.

I made this maybe over 2 1/2 years ago and it was my second time doing cables and I loved it! It was ALOT of fun to do.

I got the pattern from the Crochet Fantasy issue no.174 April 2004 called "Cables on the Blue Lagoon" by Belinda "Bendy" Carter.

I actually made it in purple. What is is with purple and pictures? The close up pics look grey for some reason, the pic of the full sweater is closer to the color, but it looks more blue in the pic.

The panels between the cables are a type of mesh stitch and the sleeves are like a fishnet stitch. The cables are done with a double treble crochet.
