Ez's Butterfly Jacket
Did you hear it's snowing today in Portland/Vancouver?? I'm sure for most of you in colder regions this isn't that big of news except for here - it's a big thing! Everything is closed - schools, government and roads and everyone just stays home. So strange!
Anyhow - so my point is - it's cold here right now and I haven't lived in a cold climate for ages so I have barely anything appropriate to wear. This morning I was craving something warm and wooly. I went digging through my closet and guess what I found -
In my flurry of finishing this summer I wove in the ends of this FO and threw it in a drawer somewhere. I have to admit - I wasn't impressed. The fit and style was well, blah. But today, in the cold weather with a little mixing and matching - it took on a new form, just as a butterfly does and I love it! It feels infinitely wearable and best of all wooly and warm. Just as a Zimmerman knit should be.
Here's a view from the back. (shoulda done it seamless but I was lazy)
I knit it in Berrocco Ultra Alpaca (2 skeins - eeked through, barely) and the pattern is from Wool Gathering #78 (since sold out, and the pattern is now sold as a spun out and it's called the butterfly jacket. It's a modernized version of the classic rib warmer. More details on ravelry as always.
