Notes

I bought this yarn in Perth last year. My husband drove me to the Perth Festival of Yarn and waited for me for several hours. I thought it was only fair to make something for him from the yarn acquired there (maybe he would not mind driving me to Perth again one day?).
I used a pattern from an old Phildar - XXL size for the body and XL size for sleeves, and modified sleeves a bit to make it easier to sew parts together. Everything, every trim, was done separately and sewn in later. It was my Christmas gift for him this year.
