About two months ago I posted pictures of a jacket made from this pattern for our oldest granddaughter. This one is for her young sister.The pattern is an Elizabeth Zimmermann pattern.

Both jackets were made from Caron Simply Soft Brites. I found eight full skeins at a thrift store for a total of $4.00. The buttons were purchased at Hancock fabrics.

You'll notice the back looks longer than the front. Short rows were added in the back as suggested by EZ.

I LOVE it! :inlove: It's beautiful and such pretty colors!

I added short rows to my sweater I'm making to extend the back slightly both at the bottom and at the neck..per EZ as it's also a modification of her pattern I think.
