As you know from the newsletter, I’ve admired Erica Raspberry’s version of this jacket for some time, so I had hoped that mine would come out as nicely. Since I had chosen Taiyo, a delicious Noro blend of cotton and silk, I wanted a cropped style that I could wear all summer.
After the decreases were complete, I knit only enough increases to get me back to my starting number. Then I did the neckline and continued for about an inch. Then I picked up all around and worked for another inch. Finally, I picked up around the collar, worked one round, and bound off all the stitches. I’m very pleased with the way it came out. It hangs off the hanger in this photo, so I’ll try to post a photo that shows how it looks on an actual body.
