Hey Guys! I wanted to share a recent sweater that i finished a few weeks ago and have been meaning to post here:

The pattern is "Jarrett" from Rowans "Vintage Knits." I used Rowanspun DK but had to rewrite the pattern to adjust for a finer guage.  The sweater is great and has knitted elbow patches and epaulets (shoulder patches).  I've posted the write up on the blog. Check it out if you want more details.

I REALLY like this sweater! Good job on it!

Supurb cardigan, I only hope that mine looks as good. Back is done, one sleeve & I'm working on the right front now!

Yes, another masterpiece indeed!!!  And let me also express my admiration for the very professional photography. 

I've really wanted to like the Jarrett pattern for a long time now.  There's something about elbow patches and epalets that appeals to me.  But there was just something about it that didn't sit right with me and I could never quite figure out what it was.  I believe it was just a poor picture of the finished sweater in the Rowan book.  Your sweater is amazing and the photography does for the finished product what Rowan's never quite did.  Bravo on both counts.
