I love this pattern - I've already knitted it twice and have another in the pipeline.  I added an inch or so (10 sts) to the body length for mine, knitted in Noro Silk Garden Chunky, and made the sleeves of the next one 4" longer, this time in plain cotton.  Both look brilliant.

Thank you.

Please help, I am half way finished knitting this sweater and left the magazine on an airplane last week.  I went back to the store where I purchased and they have no more copies, is it possible to get a copy of the magazine so I can finish the sweater?  So much work, I hate to not be able to finish.  Thanks

this is a very chic little jacket! A lot of times cropped jackets look shrunken and just too small, but this one looks proportionate and well-fitting. I like the side-to-side construction- I get to bored making front, back, and sleeves separately-and the chunky yarn means it will knit up swiftly but dosen't look the slightest bit bulky. I'd make one in a soft, pretty color for spring and even a deep, rich color for fall....maybe with a toggle closure instead of buttons for a cool military effect.

I am knitting this pattern now and cannot find the errata sheet.  May I have the direct link to the errata? I am stuck at Back neck increase row....

Is this sweater a beginner could make?  And, can you make it a little longer/

The pattern is available in the Spring 2010 issue of Interweave Knits. This issue should be available in most bookstores and yarn shops!
