"The colors in this jacket remind us of logging roads edged with flowering goatweed. The jacket has a tapered bodice and dolman sleeves that slip into a saddle-shouldered yoke. The kimono collar is added after the rest of the jacket has been completed. Rolled down, it becomes a shawl collar with soft lapels."

Pattern calls for "sport weight yarn at about 1600 yards per pound" with the model made in the Rauma Finullgarn. MC 11-13 oz, CC 9-11 oz, accent A 2 oz, accent B 2 oz.

Sweaters was originally published in Norway in 1990 as Norsk Strikkebok. The English edition was put out by Interweave in 1992.  It is sadly out of print but shows up now and then on eBay.
