Ruffled Jacket

And this is what the Rowanspun Aran in the previous post wanted to be.

Ruffled Jacket by James Coviello.
Vogue Knitting, Fall 2007.

You can see a gorgeous finished jacket on Veronique's blog. This is the one that made me want to knit it!

The yarn is a little bit more brown/beige than the gray in this picture. As always, I'm loving the Rowanspun. I think I prefer the Aran over DK and 4 ply. It's so squishy and smooshy. And knitting on 5,5 mm needles is superfast! The pattern calls for 6,5 mm needles, but I didn't want the stitches to be too loose. So I decided to use 5,5 needles instead and knit size L, aiming for an end result around size M. Let's see if it works...

oh, Heidi, I love this jacket. I hope to see it finished soon (much faster than my sitcom chic :-)
