Beadwork by J. St**more

Here it is in all it's glory!



Started March 8, 2007
Finished August 20ish, 2007
Yarn: Scottish Fleet 9 skeins (a wonderful gift from Tan!)
Needles: 2.5 mms
Original stitch patterns in "The Collectors Items" by J.St**more. The book has the children's version. The adult pattern came from IW Knits Winter 1999-2000.
Pattern modifications: several. I knit the smaller size but modified the stitch distribution on the sides. Also for the sleeves I started with more stitches and increased less width. This gave the sleeve a more "anatomical" shape. I also made it longer than the pattern specs.
Buttons: purchased at the Black Sheep Wool Co. in Salt Lake City




I love the pattern and the stitch definition.
