Changing the back.
Actually knit two backs - one per pattern and one with no pleats just to see which one I like better. Nothing wrong with the pattern, just wanted a simple and more classic look, but with a curved hemline (longer in the back and shorter in the front). A search for buttons was long and hard, and in the end went for these simple greyish ones, which for some reason do not look grey in the pictures ;).
Also, added a few more rows to the collar.

Could not be happier with the results. This one will be a wardrobe staple for years to come.

Absolutely in love with the yarn! It’s such a pleasure to knit, I didn’t mind knitting it twice :)
