Emma Jacket

I've been knitting on garments for the upcoming knit-along. I decided that I wanted to knit the cropped version of the Emma Jacket. It has been on my list for a long time! I went shopping in my stash and found this beautiful Tahki New Tweed yarn.

Needles: US size 5 and 3 (I knit loosely!)
Gauge: 5 stitches per inch
Size shown is 42"

Alterations: I put on 2 buttons instead of 1.
I also used the directions for the short sleeves, but left out 5 rows.
It ends up being 3/4 inch sleeves on me because I am so short in my legs and arms.

This is a pattern from Christina Wall (Classic Cable Knits).
Pattern is available for purchase at Stitches & Scones in Westfield, Indiana and on Ravelry.

Pattern does have a hip length version, as well.
