Lady's 8ply jacket with 3/4 sleeves, curved fronts and lace trim knitted on larger needles.
This is a very pretty knit and great for casual wear as well as when something a little more dressy is called for.
To achieve the desired effect this garment has been designed to be worked on bigger needles at a looser tension than usually recommended.
17 sts and 23 rows to 10cm over stocking st, using 5.50mm needles.
My mum taught me to knit when I was just four years old and I have been addicted ever since.
I now work (if you can call it work!) as a pattern writer and technical editor, both for companies here in Australia and for my own business.
I love the creative process and using a simple ball of yarn and a pair of needles to make something gorgeous yet practical.
