Pattern Description:

WOW FACTOR! Sumptuous Chenille evening jacket with matching hat and gold braid. This is one of my reissued designer patterns published in 1994, which is just as fashionable today for your smart occasions or to wear in the evening.

For standard gauge punchcard knitting machines with ribbers (or use a mock rib if you are ribberless!)

You will cause quite a stir in this dramatic garment with its sparkly background and gold ric rac detailing. Designed for Yeoman acrylic chenille, Yeoman Cashmilon acrylic 4 ply and Yeoman Rexor lurex thread. However, any 4 ply yarn can be used if it matches the tension swatch. You can make the jacket just an edge to edge by omitting the button and buttonhole at neck, or leave out the gold ric rack braid for more of a daytime look!

To fit bust 34, [36, 38, 40, 42] inch, however, the finished measurement round the bust is 44 [46, 48, 50, 52] inches, so will fit someone measuring 48 - 50 round the bust.

This garment is designed for intermediate knitters.
