This pattern was in the recent knitting magazine. It took me 3 weeks to knit. It was knit from the bottom up on circulars and and the front and back are knit at the same time up to the armpits and then fronts and backs are knit separately. The yarn is Rowan DK wool. The mother of pearl buttons I had picked up years ago at either an antique store or quilt show for $3.00. Working now on to UFOs and will post soon. One is a cotton sweater and the other is a repeat of the Soft Shoulder Warmer pattern I made twice already (but it's a fun one).
