Johanna Jacket

 Another big winner at market this year is the Johanna Jacket. It was designed by Kate Oates of Tot Toppers fame. She's been working on a new line of patterns these day for grown-ups called When I Grow Up. We are super excited to be a part of her new venture.

The model is knit in our Shepherd Bulky in another of our new colors, Ascot. Looking for some instant gratification? Bulky yarn is just the ticket. And think of all the fun you can have with the buttons! I have it on good authority that Kate may have gone a little crazy at the button store with this one. 

Over on the pattern page on Rav there are several more photos. I like that she used two different models so we can get an idea of how the sweater will look on different sized people. That Kate is smart. 

We're all big green fans around here and when this one came out of the dye pots it took our breath away. We got great feedback about the color at the show too. One self proclaimed "green hater" even bought some.
