Very interesting construction. It was a pleasure to knit, and the pattern is very well written.

I worked the pockets like I learned it from machine-knitting:
two rows to position the pocket and secure the stitches with waste yarn.
After finishing the rest of the sweater I took the stitches secured by waste yarn and worked the pockets. Piece of cake, I don’t know a way more simple.
I was inspired by Iwonaa’s idea to make a contrasting border.

If I hadn’t so many other projects working I would immediately make another.

I was very surprised about the sparkling yarn I bought from a yarn sale. It’s twisted in Z-way (not as usual in S-way) and it was very easy and fast to work with.
The jacket will be closed with a shawl needle
