Pattern: Voluta, by Rachel Erin, from Twist Collective.
Yarn: Cottage Craft 2-ply worsted weight wool yarn, in “sandstone.” The yarn is scratchy and rustic with many bits of vegetation to pick out. It is not a heavy yarn, however, and I think it worked quite well with the pattern.
Modifications: I did in fact mess around with the length of the jacket because I am a short woman. It took some doing, but I did manage to shorten the bottom border-to-waist as well as the waist-to-shoulder lengths while preserving the cables (pat myself on the back).
Thoughts: I am a sucker for cables, especially of the unusual sorts. Rachel Erin did a wonderful job with the design and construction of this jacket. I even like the idea of 3/4 sleeves — it will show off some of my chunky silver cuffs.
