shaping Review by Linda
Rating

I really like the style of the jacket, but the lower shaping seemed to just flare out to much in the back, the directions said if you want to make it longer ...which I did, just keep knitting on the last row until desired length. but the way it flares at the bottom I am afraid that it will loose its shape...so for that reason I haven't started it yet.
