I chose to make the mohair hoodie and followed the pattern carefully.However it just didn't work out.The measurements on the diagram didn't match the knitting instructions and I had to undo the hood because it was completely inaccurate and work out how to do it myself.The sleeves also turned out to be too tight under the arm.I asked my friend,an experienced knitter to check that I hadn't made a mistake.What a disappoinment.I hope the other patterns are more accurate.
I just loved Ms. Cohen's book, 'Knitting Simple Jackets'. The beautiful style jackets, easy to understand directions, and suggested yarns to complement the designs, is a must for not only the knitting expert but also the novice. I am already knitting the 'Comfy Car Coat'. Thank you Ms. Cohen for providing us with another winner!
