Another finished sunrise!




I am so happy with my jacket. I haven't added the toggle buttons yet, I think I may go with just one funky button instead. I would love to knit this again with the Karabella soft tweed. Thanks Kate Gibert for the fantastic pattern and to all the fellow KALers for their encouragement. Everyone's jackets are looking so nice.

Your jacket came out perfect - it's beautiful!!!! It looks pretty without the buttons too . . . I think that's a good option (leaving the buttons off). I love the color too. Looks like the fit is great. Wonderful!!!!

It looks great. What yarn did you use for this jacket? I like how it doesn't look too stiff.

Very nice jacket - what size did you knit? It looks perfect. I really like the idea of one funky button. I am thinking about one single clasp or a cool pin to close mine.

Thanks, I used Wool of the Andes from Knitpicks in Fern (Less than $20!). Same as Mintyfresh :)

It was size 37 but I shortened the sleeves a little.
