Long and Lean Jacket Reviewed by Wendy Papernick on 2014-09-23 ****
I made the small size of the jacket and it turned out to be lovely. I had to buy an extra ball of yarn to knit the neck and the sleeve borders even though I checked my gage before I started the project.

The only negative comment I have is that the yarn frays badly at the ends so I had to tie knots on the end every time I joined more yarn.

It was the first project that I have completed in more than seven years and I love the finished piece.

I did realize that I need to take another finishing class soon.

I am going to make another one for my daughter.

This pattern was very quick and easy to knit. I plan to make it again in another color. I gotten compliments on it every time I've worn it. I did make one change. I knitted the cuffs in the round after the side seams were sewn to give it a more finished look.

I made this jacket in Wisteria as shown in the pattern and it turned out beautifully. It is easy to make and it goes very fast. The wool is absolutely beautiful and soft and I just love it. Easy directions and easy pattern to follow. It is stunning. Go ahead make it and you will love it.

I also made it in Prarie. Started out to use it as a bathrobe, but it turned out too nice. Am looking forward to wearing it as a spring/fall jacket.

Just finished this pattern in Harvest and it turned out beautifully! The pattern was super easy to follow and is flattering to most body types. I have had numerous compliments on it. Will do it again in another color!

Long and Lean Jacket Reviewed by Julia Pellizzer on 2011-08-16 *****
I just completed this jacket a few days ago and it turned out wonderfully! It was a very easy pattern to follow, and it gave me great results. My project was done in "Prarie," and the color(s) is beautiful! Will make this again this winter in a lighter colorway for the spring. Also, I added two patch pockets to the front of the jacket to make it more functional.
