Ashley started this jacket as soon as the British Sheep Breeds Yarn came in! It's the Gayle Jacket shown on the cover of the accompanying book. In the book it's shown in Bluefaced Leicester, but Ashley wanted a darker color so that it wouldn't show spots as much.
Ashley's note: if you have long arms like I do, be sure to pick up an extra ball of yarn--I used one more than the pattern called for!
