FO: Tree Jacket

Well, I'm done!
Tree Jacket
That face isn't my feeling for the sweater; it was really sunny and windy out. I wasn't sure at first about this pattern, but I like it! The sleeves are really roomy, but that will be good if I want to wear a long sleeve tee with it. I wore a black cami for the picture, but I don't know what I should wear under it in real life.

The stats:
Pattern: Tree Jacket by Zephyr Gals
Yarn: TLC Cotton Plus, 6 balls
Needles: Size 8 Knit Picks
Mods: I was a 'tweener size, so I added enough increases to do 20 lace repeats around the body instead of the recommended 19.

Robin said...

Love it!! It really turned out great! One more sleeve to go on mine...

Chris said...

love it! What kind of ease did you go for to determine what size to make? Since the sizes are in ranges, I'm just not sure what will fit well. I figure it needs some negative ease.

Jenny said...

Thanks everybody! Chris, yep, I did 1" of negative ease. The finished Small is 34" and the Medium is 38," so I had to make an in-between size for my 37" body.

I really love it! I especially like the sleeves - it's hard to see them on the pattern pics, so I'm glad to see how great yours look - I like the stockinette at the cuff!

It looks wonderful! I just put my sleeves on scrap yarn!!!

Looks great on you! I like the idea of wearing a dark or bright color underneath to play up the lace : )

I really like how this turned out for you-the sleeves are great- the fit is great- don't you love it when the pattern works!

Michelle said...

Looks great! Fits you perfectly, too! My Tree Jacket is also finished, but I have not taken any pictures yet. I'll be doing that in the next days.

Jen said...

This looks great! I am 4 rows away from splitting off the sleeves...I am excited to get back to the pattern!
