PATTERN DETAILS

This versatile shawl collar lace jacket is knit on larger needles so the lace is open and light, and it works up quickly. It is a great transeasonal cover-up, wrap, yoga cardy or vest. The project is suitable for a beginner lace knitter, as there is absolutely no shaping! The front edge naturally forms a nice scallop. The jacket utilises the drape of the lace fabric and a unique construction method for its shaping. The jacket is worked in rectangular pieces, blocked to measurements, then seamed with straight backstitch seams - no picking up stitches. You will need to know how to cast on and off, seam using backstitch, and work simple lace sts - yo, K2tog, slipped stitches and psso. Louisa Harding's 'Ondine' is a beautifully soft cotton with good yardage, and the colour has real depth. The pattern uses 9 balls. Many DK yarns could be substituted for different effects. I recommend cotton, bamboo or silk blends to give a lovely drape. The lace pattern is in written form, and there are plenty of pictures to help with the final assembly. The sizing is one size with plenty of positive ease, and will suit anywhere from a 30-36" bust, around size 10 to 14 Australian. Bust size of model in pictures is 33". (More sizes to come, but simple to upsize by increasing the number of lace repeats.) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on and off seam using backstitch work simple lace sts - yo, K2tog, slipped stitches and psso GAUGE 16 stitches and 20 rows = 4 inches in St st using 5.5mm (US 9) needles SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size, to fit 30-36" bust SUGGESTED YARN 1072 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Louisa Harding Yarns Ondine - 9 balls COLORWAY Bark
