Isn’t this the cutest jacket??? And it’s crochet, my fav… what a bonus!
(sorry, the photo has been deleted apparently) 😦
Here is the color of yarn I am planning to make this jacket in, it’s called Barrington. This pattern takes 4-6 (100 gram) skeins, so not a lot considering it is a jacket and in crochet, which usually takes quite a bit more than a knit version of any item.
I’ve had this stash of Lion Brand Homespun for over a year and had yet to find a pattern that I really wanted to make. Every one I looked at was not quite right. Either… too sloppy, too tight, goofey, too complicated, not enough yarn, wouldn’t use up all the yarn, knit, knit and more knit (this time I wanted to get back to hooking LOL). Can you relate?
Lo and behold, today, in my inbox, magically (or so it seemed) the right pattern appeared. I just love it and can’t wait to get started.
In case you haven’t signed up yet, for Lion’s free and well-worth the read/time newsletter (where this pattern is featured). Also an interesting article on crochet felting in this edition

Happy Hooking and Knitting…. 🙂
