If only the horses had been down at our end of port meadow today, the title would've been perfect. As it is, the sweater-coat is perfect! I knit a size smaller than the pattern told me to, because I don't like a baggy fit - I made the 40" finished bust size (to fit 36-38" bust) to fit my 39.5" bust.
I also changed the sleeves dramatically, opting for a 1x1 rib for the majority for the circumference, but following the 3x1 to 2x1 to 1x1 rib pattern for the three centremost ribs.
Finally, I added these big wooden buttons because belted jumpers and I don't get along. I love the button holes I used, the three-row vertical (although horizontal) buttonhole on this page.
I've been working on Flicca since October and put it away to do NaKnitSweMo - which was the disaster that never ended - so it's grand to have this done!
