Wash's sweater

I'm attempting to do a copy of this sweater. I've worked out a rough draft of the cable here, but will have to check it against the Firefly DVD to see how close I've actually got it. I'll also have to knit it to see if what I've got is a close enough match.

This is so unbelievably amazing. This is exactly what I want to do! I googled it looking for screen caps and I found you! Do I have your permission to try and recreate your sweater?

Kat, You're welcome to do anything you like with the picture.

There are a bunch of people on Ravelry who want to recreate the sweater, and I got involved in a discussion about it. I was going through my Firefly DVDs looking for it to appear. Right at the end of "The Message" I spotted Wash walking out of Serenity and for just a second he's under a light. I paused the DVD, grabbed my camera, and this picture is the result.

There are no decent pictures of the sleeves anywhere that I've been able to find, which is why I gave up on it.

Thanks for the info! I found the group on Ravelry. I did a little bit of googling and I found these pictures of the sleeves:

You can click on the pictures to make them bigger. The quality isn't amazing, but it's not too bad either.
