Another sample is off our needles. I totally love this one as well, no surprise there. Knit with seven skeins of Debbie Bliss Chunky Tweed on 7mm needles, it knits up so fast. Each piece could be knit in one evening - so you could have a sweater/jacket in one week! Wow.
You can find the free pattern here!
Another great yarn you could use for this sweater is Berroco Campus. It is tweedy and has a great halo that would look amazing!
