What was your inspiration?
Ormond Beach in Florida. A very beautiful place. I can see myself wearing this jacket when it is a little cool there.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that it is almost seamless. A 2x2 rib front band is worked concurrently with an overall Rickrack Lace pattern and the pattern is available in 10 sizes.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use stitch markers to separate sts for front band from the body. If you would like, use markers for pattern repeats until the stitch pattern is established.
