Ooh, it looks great! I think I'm going to have to bump it up closer to the top of my 'to-knit' list...

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!  I would highly recommend the pattern.  The stitches aren't difficult, but they are interesting at the same time.  Plus, this pattern seems to work well with a variety of yarns (I have seen peopel use lots of worsted options, including Cascade 220, Patons Classic Merino, and Malabrigo).

I especially love the way the back looks.  This has now made it onto my ever-growing list of things I want to knit.  I'm in the market for a new project...

Congratulations!
It looks really good.


I heard the collar tends to stick up... or look floppy. Did you do anything to this so that it lay down neatly?

The collar didn't give me trouble.  I crocheted the edging looser than the pattern suggested, which may be why. 

And thanks, again, for your comments, everyone!
