Pattern Description:

I'd have to say that the colors of the yarn inspired this sweater; the soft, fall colors reminded me of walking through the woods with the leaves swirling down. I wanted it to be a jacket that could be worn during the changing of the seasons so I knit it at a tighter gauge than usual. I am a big advocate of personalizing things that I make, and I wanted to give others a chance to make this design their own. I left the sweater plain for the most part, so that the detail could be added later, with embroidery, as the knitter desires.
