What are you most proud of? the cable going up the hood all the way

What advice would you give someone starting this project? HOW to do the cable: The cable itself is 12 st plus 2 st in purl at each side = 14st plus 1 st each on each end. When you start you only knit the cable, start with 18 st total and on the wrong side you do as follows: slip 1. st, knit 2 st, purl 12 st, knit 2 st, knit last stich., next row and right side: slip 1st stitch, purl 2, knit 12, purl2, knit last st. repeat now wrong side row. Now - right side- you " cable": slip 1st st., purl 2st, slip the next 3 st. on a short two-ended needle and put behind the work, then knit the next 3 st off the left needle, now knit the 3 st. off the short needle, then slip the next 3 st. on the short needle and put in front of the work, then knit the remaining 3 st. off the left needle, now knit the 3 st. off the short needle ( cable done), then purl 2 st, knit last st. Continue to knit all st as they appear and then repeat the cabling in the 6th row, always a right side. In case you have never cabled just go ahead and try it, it is so much easier than it sounds! :)

I'm not a fan of hoods (I have long hair) but I do like the look of the cable. Nicely done.

pattern done in english ( european and cm) in sizes M, L and XL. Looking for a test knitter or 2. This is knitted with a european needle size 7. Very dark colours will not bring out the cable, good if yarn is fairly regular/ smooth so that the cable has a clear definition, contact me at maja@hirzlan.is if you are interested in the pattern

gorgeous work!!!!! I LOVE the cable!!! But I can't figure out how you do the cable on the hood, Is the sewing on the top of the hood? I am adding my first hood to a sweater I've made several times so I am a bit confused.. ;/
