Really, I finished it about a week ago it’s just taken me this long to get the button on and the pictures taken. It was a easy pattern to work and I would make one again if I find a nice wool to work with. I’m not sure I really like the Jiffy, by Lion Brand, but I would buy it again if I found it at $.97!
I added extra stitches under the arms and I might not do that again, the 15 stitches would probable be just fine.
I love the button that I got. I originally got it for the Cloud Bolero. OMG!! I never posted it!!?? I posted about it over at Fresh Off The Hook, but not here. Well, let me just change that.
I really like the pattern for the Cloud Bolero, (the photo doesn’t show up with the pattern but if you want to see it just have a look around the links on that page.) but I wanted a longer one. Not a big deal. The pattern was easy it just took me some time to get the hang of it because it was the first time I really ever made a knitted garment. I used Lion Brand Homespun and really enjoyed working with it. It really does make a nice and soft jacket.
Please pardon the pose DD took that picture and made me be a super modal. The only thing I would change is the picot edging on the sleeves. I don’t know if it’s this yarn or what but they are really big. I do plan on making this again, once I figure out how to add sleeves to it. LOL
