This tailcoat is very flattering, accentuating the hour glass figure (even if you don't have one!). Fabulous as outerwear for the autumn or spring, lovely and warm as a cardigan for winter. Techniques used in this pattern includes blackberry stitch, short row shaping and picking up stitches.
A delighted Agata says: “I just finished it! It was my first sweater in my whole knitting life! Your designs are wonderful. The size a perfect fit.”
