The sack back appears from time to time in the knitting world. Two of my favourite re-incarnations are Kate Gilbert's Pearl Buck jacket, from The Best of Interweave Knits,
and Rowan's Bizet, from their most recent magazine,
I haven't been much of a Rowan fan in recent years, but Issue #54 has a lot to inspire.
I'm toying with the idea of exploring this interesting and graceful shape, while I put the finishing touches on "Wheatsheaves". Barring the unexpected, that pattern should be available sometime next week. Stay tuned...
