Ruffled Jacket

It's finally finished!

I couldn't be happier with it! Everything turned out just the way I wanted it to.

I can wear it with a pin (or a knitting needle if no pin is available...).

Or I can be really classy and wear it with a belt.

Hi,

Your jacket is wonderful. I am just getting ready to make this jacket and was wondering if you knitted the cable that surrounds the outside of the jacket separately and sewed it on or did it a different way?

Did you pick up the stitches for the ruffle? I really like the ruffle finish instead of the bells.

Best Regards,

Kathy
