I really want to make a jacket for myself, but can't seem to find a pattern that is just what I want.
My requirements are that the jacket be tunic length, meaning it hits the hips or upper thigh, has pockets and the sleeves are long enough to hit just past the wrist. Oh, and a means to close it, either buttons or a zipper.
I've been searching through Ravelry and can't seem to find what I want. I bought some DK weight yarn (84% acrylic and 16% wool), ten balls worth. Each ball is 253 yards, which would mean I would have a total of 2530 yards of yarn. Plenty to make the sweater with.
Surly modifying an existing pattern can't be hard? I'll look on Ravelry for a pattern that mostly has what I want, and is free so it can easily be seen by all of you.
EDITED TO ADD: I found a promising jacket, this one: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pattern.php?id=5071&lang=us
However, it doesn't have pockets. Is it easy to add pockets to this jacket, as it looks like the body is mostly in stockinette stitch.
