About the designer

I've been knitting for (OMG!) over 50 years. But wait: I started when I was about 4 so that's not so bad!

I love things that look hard to make but are actually really easy, and I very much enjoy ...

Dunes Jacket

from Scruffy Dog Knits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Dunes Jacket
Dunes Jacket Softly gathered neckline
Dunes Jacket Dunes Jacket
Dunes Jacket Back View
Dunes Jacket I-cord Edging

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Read and follow a pattern

Pattern Description:

With its soft, full collar and deep V-neck, this garment will be flattering on any figure type. The set-in sleeves with nicely finished cuffs look tidy.

The simple design is finished with a tailored-looking I-cord edging (including the back neck) which is deceptively quick and simple to work.

If you've been saving that "special" button for all these years, this is a perfect opportunity to show it off.

The garment shown is made with single-ply, 100% wool; this jacket would look great in everything from silk to linen to light-weight mohair, making it a versatile choice for those with stashes - I know you're out there!

One possible variation might be to use a different yarn for the Neckbands, something to contrast or complement in texture and/or color, the main garment yarn. Maybe a soft, light lace weight mohair, or angora, or alpaca. Or a solid color, where the main garment is multiple colors. There are lots of possibilities.

This was a pleasure to knit, with just enough interesting things going on to motivate progress.
