I made the sleeves about 5 inches longer. Eliminated the back panel and just worked the same cable pattern for the front and sleeves across the entire back. I eliminated the pockets because I didn't have enough yarn. I also made the sweater a size smaller because I plan to attach a two way zipper to the front and wear it more fitted. I still have to get the zipper. A trip to Vardhman's on 39th between 7th & 8th is in order. And then I can stop by M&T Trimming for a button to match the Spiral Tweed Cloche.
I hope to be wearing this at Rhinebeck this year.
