Pattern description from Knit.1, Fall 2007:

Business in the front, party at the back. Head-on, this buttoned jacket, in Fiesta Yarns’ ‘Watermark,’ is the picture of polo-collared professionalism. From behind, it’s all soft romance, with a center back pleat and garter-stitch ties that gather in a bow.
