Long & Lean Jacket
Created By: Helen Condon
Pattern Source: other:

Started this as a stash-buster with 1 ball of Fiesta & 2 skeins of Corinthian Homespun but ended up running to the store for another ball of Corinthian and still had to work the neckband in another yarn. The size was waay off, too, so I had to underdo the neckband & sew up more of the shoulder seam. I decided to knit the body in one piece with markers where the side seams should have been. I also chose to use short rows for the shoulder shaping which made it a little more challenging. Get LOTS of compliments, though :-)
