Well, I finally got round to it and I'm so pleased with how it turned out:
Morrie refers to it as his "Crocodile top" because the yarn colourway was named "Hungry Crocodile" and he says the cabling looks like a crocodile's tail >.<
I'm looking forward to knitting this pattern again, it's well written and knits up quickly. Morrie has asked for a red one and he has told me I need to make a blue one for his brother. Such demanding children I have... I'll have to convince my OH to let me go yarn shopping!
