Cropped jacket

Here's a little cardigan I've made myself, using the same technique as Melanie's shrug. I picked up some alpaca-blend yarn on clearance, and I'm always needing something to keep my shoulders warm here in this icebox where I work.

I love how such a simple design (top-down, try on as you go raglan) can produce quite different garments when done in different yarns. The only change to the design was lengthening the sleeves and body.

Sorry about the way the pictures have me in them, looking like an overly lit stunned rabbit. I need a model.
