Circle Jacket Completed!

I am finally finished. I may shorten the sleeves if I can... once I steamed it to block it the sleeves really grew!

I followed the pattern for size M/L... next time I will do S/M! I am only 5 foot 2 so I don't really need it to be so long.

The pattern does caution that measurements are different when it is hanging verses laying flat. Lily Chin talks about this in her book Couture Crochet.

I love it! What a beautiful jacket! I love to knit and crochet, but I love to read even more so books usually win out. I find I get the creative urge in spurts and then I'll knit something or crochet something.

Hi! My name is Glaucia, I'm from Brazil but I live in Lisbon, Portugal.
I think you could help me. I'm desperatelly looking for a model, in crochet, in a russian magazine called Malenkaya Diana, may, 2006. The model nº 1. I've got the model and the explanation in russian but I can't understand it, and I don't know if it is complete.
Sorry about my English.
God bless you!

Sorry, forgot something important.
Take a look at this:
feiticeiradasagulhas.blogspot.com, you'll find a person that tried to do the same piece from garnstudio that you've made.
Isn't funny?
Thank you again

I think I might have that magazine at home! I am in America until July so I don't have access to it.

I checked out the blog: feiticeiradasagulhas.blogspot.com

It looks like she used a smaller needle and a different type of yarn! I like how she did the trim, it came out very pretty!

Beautiful!!! I'm just learning to crochet and working on a blanket for Project Linus. I'm not brave enough to try apparel (unless you count scarves). :oD
