Eco Knit Child/Adult Adaptable Horseshoe Jacket
This is one of the designs which will be featured in the Stables shoot for the charity book Aspley Collection Book 1. Aspley Guise Lower School have a massive task of having to raise £80,000. Its a massive project so I have joined forces with Cascade yarns and Rico Design to produce this book which I really hope you will like.
This design has some real benefits for you mums that know what its like for your child to have growth spirts so I have put this design together to cater for this and for adjustments to be easily made.
The design starts from the waistband, so you end up with a cast off edge at the shoulders and also a cast off edge at the bottom of the skirt so you can easily make length adjustments.
You have a cast off edge on the cuff and cast off edge on the top of the sleeves so you can make quick alterations there.
The bands have the cast off edge at the bottom and you have options so you can easily adjust the length of the bands.
The Horseshoes are knitted separately and stitched into place. Its a fun and effective design.
There are more Stables Shoot Designs to come followed by Woburn Abbey and Up The Allotment all for this book so watch out for more designs being loaded on over the coming weeks for this book
