I am very pleased with how this turned out — it’s just what I envisioned when I started noodling around with the design. It’s quite heavy, so I can definitely wear it as a jacket. With some minor alterations, it could be turned into a pullover.
Here’s a tour of Dungarvan.
Twisted rib for bottom band and front bands, with black leather buttons.
The big cable goes up the center of the sleeve and extends into the saddle shoulder.
So there you have it.
