Here is my version:
Due to time restraints, I had to omit the pockets and elbow patches. Still I think the sweater has lots of charm. But then I realized I had a couple of extra days after all, but not to re-block the sweater, so I knit up this hat to coordinate with the buttons.
I made lots of needless errors on this sweater. I equally blame my sloppy reading skills and their poor pattern editing. My full notes are on Ravelry.
