Drops Jacket

Pattern103-1 Jacket by DROPS Design
Yarn: Rowan Big Wool Fusion, Soot
Needles: US 10.5 & 11

This jacket was so much fun to make with the big yarn and needles. Wow. I don't think I have every made a sweater in two weeks before. It is very warm, making it a great spring/fall jacket.  And the hat was a bonus with just the right amount of yarn leftover.  

I modified this pattern quite a bit to make it top-down, seamless with raglan sleeves. I decided to make the sleeves long, rather than 3/4. I also went down a needle size to do the cuffs. I am amazed at how nice the yarn is and how little it balls up.

Simba and Luna were perfect models for me in front of our big oak tree.

I thought you might enjoy this picture of Simba "helping" me put the buttons on!
