Sidecar Jacket

This Sidecar Jacket is one I have wanted to do for a long while now.
Kind of a cute cropped one. I love the color I chose....
 However I did not love the weight of this yarn or the ply...too soft for this large-needled heavy sweater. I would choose a heavier gauge yarn if I did it again. Overall, it was fun to construct, with the cabled waistline first, then picking up stitches upward for the body. However, the picked up stitches are quite visible in this.

I used some extra snaps to try to hold the front flap down and tried to tack the collar down also...
Overall, cute pattern, poor choice of yarn on my part.
