This pattern is from the book New England Knits which is available as an eBook.

This cropped peacoat-style sweater has a classic double-breasted shape with a modern length. Covered buttons evoke the details on the traditional peacoat, but sew-on snaps concealed beneath the front panel keep the lines crisp. A rose pattern worked on the upper back adds an interesting and slightly feminine detail.

Sample knitted by Amanda Hosmer.
