What a comfortable and elegant-looking cardi. I love the colour too.

What a well-made jacket! It's beautiful!


The swing pleat makes all the difference, it's beautiful!


It is so beautifully made. Well done! I adore the colour.

Oh, I also am enamoured of your garden.


Beautiful cardigan. It has nice detailing but not too much. And it looks very comfy.
( Don't you think Rosemary and Thyme was a bit lame this season?)




It looks wonderful! Great fit and beautiful color! What a great job you did!


I'm so inspired! Thank you for sharing.


It's wonderful, Jeanne! I love the color, too.


A beautiful jacket, in color, design, and quality! :)
I'm so impressed by anyone who knits clothing - I've never done anything fitted or with sleeves!
You should be very very proud - I know you'll enjoy wearing it!


It's a lovely jacket. Thanks for sharing your tips on lengthening the sleeves. That's the one modification I plan to make and this gives me a good place to start.


Oh Jeanne you did a beautiful job! Thank you for all that you've done on this knit along. I'm very inspired to get this one done soon. I have really appreciated all of the technical info that you have shared as you've been knitting.


That's a really beautiful and classic sweater. LOVE the color. Perfect finishing as well - all around great knitting. Wear it proudly.


I know I'm a little late but your jacket looks great! I really love the color, too.

I read about this knitalong on another site and gasped with joy - I've been lusting after knitting this from the moment I saw it in Knits! It would have been my first sweater, so I decided to do one other before diving into it, but I found my yarn on a trip overseas so I'm so pysched. Yours is beautiful, and it's good to read your comments on it. Thanks for hosting the knitalong!


I recently bought a sweater with a back like the Pearl Buck and now I know why I thought I had to have it! It reminded me of this sweater! I'm so glad I had my memory jogged. I think this sweater is gorgeous.

Where do I get this pattern??? I love it!


Teege, you can find the pattern in the Winter 2005 issue of "Interweave Knits", which I suspect is now out of print. If you don't have or know anyone who has it, you might try your public library.

I've found WorldCat to be very useful in tracking things down in libraries -- here is the entry for Interweave Knits: http://www.worldcat.org/title/interweave-knits/oclc/34594188&referer=brief_results
