Pattern Description:

This is a collection of 5 coordinating designs, knit in Plymouth Yarns Alpaca Boucle.

This yarn is wonderfully soft and very reasonable in price for an alpaca yarn. It is easy to knit and comes in some fabulous color blends. I've made the samples in natural white and a beautiful blend of fuschia and orange, that has a bright raspberry overall appearance.

The designs share the familiar X and O (kisses and hugs) cable pattern, but are used in a way that best accentuates each piece.

There's a wonderfully easy-to-wear kimono jacket in 2 sizes - 44" and 52" finished chest measurements. It has waist shaping for a feminine silhouette and clasps that nestle into the X cables on the front band.

The front band is worked separately in one piece and slip stitched on. It hugs the back of the neck nicely.

The mittens and cloche are in 2 sizes - woman's medium and large. A wide scarf, perfect for winter, and a purse with bobble closure option finish the collection.

Wear the pieces alone or together. Knit them for yourself or knit the accessories as gifts!

The booklet is 22 pages in length, 8.5 x 11" in size and is solid ink printed on heavy, smooth 32 lb. stock, spiral bound with clear plastic front and rear covers, for protection against wear.
