My second sweater for me!  I started this sweater thinking I would make it my winter coat and line it but towards the end, i decided I wanted to be able to wear it inside so its just a sweater, but it is certainly warm enough to be a coat.

Pattern: http://garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=109&d_id=3&lang=us
Worked bottom up with body in one piece, the sleeves are worked in the round and joined for the yoke.

Yarn:Frog Tree Merino Melange - 13 skeins

pictures! (it still needs buttons...)







Modifications:
Continued the cable all the way to shoulders instead of doing the garter yoke.
Instead of raglan decreases, I decreased every right side row on the sleeve side of markers.
omitted hood, did short ribbed collar
