This lacy crochet jacket exemplifies the feminine, romantic look so popular on the runways now. The jacket is designed to be form-fitting, worn over a simple dress, tank top or halter. A key to the design is an ornate fan-pattern stitch motif which provides flaring at the sleeves and at the waist without the need to increase or decrease. The crochet jacket design also features accentuation of the waist with 2 luxurious silk ribbons, and the change in stitch direction at the lower rear lends a subtle bustle-like effect.
This pattern is best suited for experienced knitters/crocheters who are able to work patterns with complicated shaping and finishing. The pattern includes directions for sizes Medium (Small, Large). Size Medium is pictured. Bust = 38" (35", 41"); waist = 32" (29", 35"); length = 26" (26", 26-1/2").

Substitute Yarn Gauge (as stated on yarn label) is 28 sts = 4", fingering weight. The suggested crochet hook is a D Crochet Hook.
