Thanks for all the really nice comments. You have all given me such a confidence boost. :) Nancywin - yes I plan on using snf again soon. Probably on a spring jacket for DD. Annette1 - wow, thanks for the compliment!

And by the way, I think you should up your rating to at least "Intermediate," and I'm never wrong about these things. :o)

What a BEAUTY. I love, love, love the combination of your fabrics, ribbon and piping. I can't believe I've never noticed this pattern before! You're going to be a bad influence on me!

This turned out well and looks good on you. Do you think you will snf on your next one? I really like the technique

Beautiful work! Your jacket turned out so great. I, too, was curious about these patterns. I'm still tweaking my pattern for this class, and Shannon's knit class begins Monday (which I am also taking). It's great to learn a new technique during the Winter season.

Wow! Beqautiful jacket, and congratulations on completing a stitch-and-flip! I also took the class but currently am at the pattern-tweaking stage. I'm inspired by how nicely yours turned out!

Thanks so much for a review of this jacket. I bought the pattern last year and it's on my list of projects. I was looking forward to the good instructions and was hoping someone would make one before I did. Thanks! It looks beautiful. I love the simplicity of this design.

Lilyofthevalley -- Thanks! I used Silhouette size 3 B-cup. The fabric is either wool or a wool blend (I had it in my stash & didn't record the content). I used gross grain ribbon for the ties, and the trim is something I found at JoAnn's. I was worried that it was too narrow, but it worked out just fine.

Stunning jacket. I love your edge treatment. What an elegant touch to an elegant jacket.

Lovely sleek and body conscious style which you executed beautifully. May I ask which cup size pattern you used? And of what fabric/ribbon did you make the ties? -Lily

Thanks everyone! Bonnie K -- I did not lengthen the jacket. In all honesty, when it was time to create the tie front, I just put the jacket on and decided where I would like it to be, so I may have placed the tie higher than originally intended. I'm also on the short-side, so those two things combined may be why the jacket pictured on the pattern looks shorter? In any event, if you would like your jacket to be longer or if you are tall, lengthening the jacket shouldn't be a problem. There are even some instructions included in the pattern on how to do that.

Looks lovely and the piping us a sumptuous but subtle touch.

Wow, gorgeous jacket, I did notice that the pattern picture shows the jacket several inches shorter than yours. Did you lenthen yours or is the picture not accurate? I'd sure like to know before investing in this pattern.

Oo! I love your jacket. I don't really wear jackets, and I already have 2 or 3 jacket patterns in my stash..but you've really got me thinking about this one.

Beautiful jacket. I'd love to see a pic of the inside showing your stitch/flip technique.

Your jacket looks gorgeous and thanks for the review. I have been looking for a pattern with this sort of neck/collar and would not have thought of looking at this brand.

Your jacket is beautiful. The fabric is yummy and I like the grey piping.
