Pattern: Rogue, size 39"
Yarn: Cestari 2-ply worsted in lilac heather, 7 skeins (Hey! That's not pink!)
Needles: US size 7
1. I didn't bind off for the back-neck. I just put the stitches on a holder and then knitted them when starting the hood (and decreased two stitches in the process). This modification gets rid of most of the seam on the back.
