This jacket was a joy to knit. It went fast too, just a couple of weeks. As always I lingered in finding the buttons, now its done.
Yarn Cascade wool 220 5 skeins and a bit.

The instructions for these bobbles are interesting, instead of knitting all the stitches together in the return row, you knit three rows over three stitches and then knit them together. A lot easier on the hands than the traditional bobbles I had made.
The lace on the bottom is very pretty as well. Nothing too fancy, just enough to add some interest.
Drops patterns are full of interesting techniques. I have yet to find the first mistake in any of them. One thing that they do have to work on are the button bands in the models. Some of the pictures seem sloppy because of bad finishing techniques. That I blame on the knitter or who ever is in charge of the photography but not on the patterns.
