2/1/2018 - Irish Coffee has been updated and a new version was sent out to all Ravelry purchasers. The old version is no longer available.

Irish Coffee is a top down tunic, knit in a gorgeous tweed. The details themselves are simple and flattering, but unusual enough that the sweater garners attention wherever I wear it!

A long line of cables brings the eye to the center of the waist, while short sleeves and ribbing at the top balance out the long length. The elements of the sweater are simple and classic and result in a tunic versatile enough to wear with almost anything.

The design is worked top down, so adjusting the length, width, or sleeves for your personal taste is easy. Additional instructions in the pattern give advice on all sorts of modifications - and you can look at all the FOs on Ravelry to see the different versions, yarn choices and and options out there - it’s surprisingly flattering on everyone!

In new version, cables are both written and charted.
