The Urban Naturalist's Ladies' Jacket.
This was made from leftovers from the Urban Naturalist's Ivory Buffalo sweater. Believe it or not, one bag of yarn (10 skeins) made two adult sized sweaters! I am in love!
Made from: 5 skeins of Steadfast Fibers' Wonderful Wool, colorway Sahara
Time to knit: I honestly don't remember. Not very long - less than a month.
My favorite part of the sweater is the shawl collar. It was taken from Nicky Epstein's Knitting Beyond the Edge. The collar and button band is knit in one piece with the collar being shaped by short rows. I did it in a 1 x 1 rib to match the cuffs. I am so please! It is definitely a technique that I would use again. Maybe a bigger collar next time.
I am so ready for fall!
