So if it looks like you have seen this exact jacket somewhere else. It's because you have. My friend Stacey of Sheep in the City made the exact and I do mean exact same jacket. Right down to the buttons. I wish I could say that the idea was all mine but sadly it was not. She chose the yarn color first. She knit it up and then taught the class on it. Then bought the cutest elephant buttons to complete the project and called it done. I fell in love with the yarn and had to copy her. I crashed her class because I just had to knit this cute jacket. Then after going to five different locations (I swear and I can name them if you really want me to) looking for the perfect buttons for this jacket I settled on the same exact elephant buttons that she picked. I tried to be different really I did. I had a vision in my mind for the buttons I wanted. Gorgeous glass flower shaped buttons. I got desperate towards the end and figured anything that even looked good would be acceptable. Everything looked terrible. Everything except the elephant buttons. I have not sewn them on yet. I am still hoping to find the perfect buttons that I want. If I don't.......helloooooo Mr. Elephant.
