Toby’s Jacket

This was knit by my friend Toby.  While visiting for coffee I offered to sew it together for her.  I love to sew knitting together.  It didn’t hurt that it has the same drape as the vest pattern I’m working on.

Sun and Sky Draped Jacket from Ironstone Yarns

Designed by Debbie Miller for Ironstone Yarns

Knit & Style–April 2007 Back Issue available at KnitnStyle.com

Bulky weight Noro

I don’t know which of the Noro’s this is, but how could any Noro be bad?

Here’s a detail.  The jacket is made of 3 rectangles and 2 sleeves.

This sleeve detail that Toby knit  is my favorite detail.  You just decrease every other row on both edges of the sleeve  for about an inch and leave that last inch or so unsewn.  Looks dapper when you fold it up.

This is the front of the magazine where she found the pattern.
