Notes

I was looking for a short jumper/sweater to wear with a skirt or highwaisted pants. It turned out exactly as I wanted it to be.
Great pattern with darts, waist shaping, short rows, fair isle, stripes, circular yoke, you name it… Not one single boring moment, I got so engrossed by it that I finished in no time.
I changed the fair isle pattern - wanted to use argyle - but otherwise I just followed directions. And I changed colors - couldn’t be helped, these were the only ones available. Next time I’ll make it with darker colors and without darts and waist shaping.
Love the end result. Highly recommend the pattern.
The yarn - needless to say, it is discontinued (I seem to be using only discontinued yarn lately) - is very easy to work with and has an amazing stitch definition.
More - on my blog.
