Toby gives a high five - good job, Mom!
Pattern: Stef Japel's Forecast from knitty
Yarn: Cascade 220 Tweed in Dark Purple (color 610, I think). A little less than 4 skeins.
Modifications: The popular ones from the KAL. 3 stitch bobbles instead of 5, starting the ribbing at the elbow and just under the bust. Made it a little longer overall and calculated for a 34" size, between the 32" and 36". And I only added 9 buttons instead of 10, only because there were only 9 buttons left at the store when I bought them.
Verdict: I really like this one, even more than Arisaig. I feel like it's a flattering fit and texturally interesting. The yarn is soft, and I feel like this is one I can wear with jeans or nicer pants, too. The only thing I didn't like was the yarn bleeding on my hands while knitting it and that it's started to pill on me already under the arms and sides :(
What I learned: I had never made bobbles before. They were fun.
