I liked to knit this piece. Quite easy, but very interesting. Lot of nice details: linen stitch, epaulettes, pockets.

About knitting:
Easy once you are not afraid of knitting some part of your cardi separately and manage with stitch holders.
Always interesting.
But you wont be able to try it on as you go cause it’s a bottom up construction.

About Yarn:
This jacket requires a HUGE amont of yarn. Be sure to have enough, and from same dyelot.

My yarn was a little bit bulkier than what the pattern called for, but I managed to keep the size good for me.

About Size:
Size is perfect.
I chose to knit my regular size. As indicated in pattern this jacket has a little positive ease and I think it must be this way (cause if it is too thight, it will pull on the buttons)

I’m the kind of girl who likes tighter fit, but for this jacket I’m happy with positive ease.
