      Hello Gabriela thanks for your kind remark. I do not maintain a bloc. In general you can think of the jacket as to be worn as well inside (in winter) as outside (in fall).

    I’d love to have a more detailed description on how you did this (pattern or tutorial? Ribbing self knitted? Etc) and to see it on you. I bet the fit is perfect!

      I used a pattern out of Burda 10/2007. It is modell no. 103 in european size 34. The side parts are in form of big rounds. Those “rounds” i substituted with knit. The knits are hand-knitted with LANG Jawoll fingerring yarn. Of course I chose the wool colour exactly matching to the fabric colour. Then I thought replacing parts of the sleeves would be a good idea too. The knit is done in 1/2 brioche stitch. The edges, where the fabric is sewn to the knitted parts are embellished with knitted bands in normal straight stitch. As well as the buttons. Here I knitted little patches and covered the buttons with. Actually the whole modell grew as I was going on. I just had the idea to put together wool fabric with knitted wool in a semi-caual manner.
      The fit is perfect no matter what figure you have, as the knit stretches and shrinks easily to any curves. Try it, when you know how to do basic knitting it is easy. Would love to see what you are making out of that idea.
      Hope that helps. Bests Suzanne
