Nantucket Jacket

I finished the Nantucket jacket from Interweave Interweave knits Winter 2006. Knit with Knitpicks Swish Superwash in Indigo heather. I added two inches to the body length since I am tall, but I think I could have added an inch or so more so that the flare would really fall on the hips. I added three inches to the sleeves to make more of a 3/4 sleeve, I did not like the elbow length shown in the pattern. After it was knit and put together this still did not seem like quite enough length so I made three rows of single crochet on the end of the sleeve before making the scalloped edge.

I loved knitting this sweater. The cable pattern was so easy to remember. I am not good at memorizing patterns and usually find myself constantly consulting the chart. But this one flew along. Now to find the perfect button.
