I knit this jacket for my daughter, she is a girlie girl, so I made it out of bubblegum pink cashmere with a feminine bottom edge and collar. The diamond, rib shaping is flattering on most women, regardless of size and the jacket is incredibly forgiving (for those of us who regularly move between multiple sizes). While it was fairly easy for me to make as I designed it, the second time around was more challenging. But it got easier as I got the hang of the design. So this is not for the novice knitter. But the final garment is fabulous!
