A very different fitted knit jacket with vintage and modern elements combined. First, is the stunning lace pattern that creates a beautiful scalloped hem and front edges. A peplum effect is created with gathering at the back waist.
Then, the rest of the jacket is adorned with delicate twisted stitches that meander up to the shoulders. The same twisted stitch pattern is echoed on the extended sleeves. A shaped shawl collar, curved button bands, and sleeve edgings are all done in a twisted rib to complete the design.
This is a truly unique design that will earn you many oohs and ahhs. Knit in a very elegant silk and merino wool blend yarn that shows fabulous stitch definition.
