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

Looking at the pattern you started with, and the most *gorgeous* sweater you made, I really would never have guessed!  You truly made this your own. The colour, the way you did the cables of the sleeve, and how they join at the shoulder, lovely! Just so very lovely! 

And it looks so very good on you too! Smiley  That's always my biggest obsticle myself - making it fit. heh. You do great work!!
