A few months ago, Sundara from Sundara Yarn wrote me and asked me if I would like to use her yarn in a design of my own. She sent me this gorgeous cashmere and silk blend in a new color she has named "Passion." So, I thought the color and drape of this wonderful fiber lent itself to a sweet jacket perfect to pair with a pretty dress, tank or top.
Knit in pieces and seamed up and dressed up with a touch of attached i-cord, this jacket features a completely reversible nine-row lace pattern so that, should the jacket fall open, the wrong side will be just as pretty as the right side.
This jacket is meant to be loose, so when choosing sizes feel free to size up a bit.
I'd say this project is suitable for an advanced beginner. The only skill that is intermediate is the attached i-cord that can be skipped if you want to. There are many on line tutorials for attached i-cord, so if you're wondering how to do it, there are plenty of resources.
