rib bands - nice!

My periwinkle blue chubby with very dark purple buttons and rib bands on the pockets around the bottom of the jacket. In the photograph you see how few stitches are needed in bulky weight yarn and how much the K2P2 ribbing pulls in the flat fabric of the seed stitch body of the jacket. If gauge is off by 1/2 a stitch per inch, a knitted garment might not knit to size and expectations. I love the bold way that this jacket was designed.
