We can’t say enough about the fabulous Lyon Circle Jacket, designed by Kimberly McAlindin. While it may look like a cropped shawl-collared jacket, it’s a much more interesting design. the jacket is started as a ring of four chains joined into a circle. Kimberley then worked increases, just as you would for the center of many granny squares. The rounds are continuous, so you just keep going until you get to the armholes. The result is a fabulous all-season stunner.


Naturally Country
75% Microdenier acrylic, 25% Merino wool; 3 oz/100 g, 185 yds/170 m ball):
18 (21, 24, 30) oz (A), 0008 Silver Service
3 (3, 3, 3) oz (B), 0024 Black


Bust and Length (diameter of circle): 31 1/2 (36, 42, 47 1/2)“/80 (91.5, 106.5, 120.5) cm

Notes: Diameter measurement also represents bust measurement (with some folded for collar) and length measurement. Length as worn will be shorter because part of circle is folded over to form collar and lapels. Jacket will lengthen about 2–4”/5–10cm when worn. Since Jacket can be worn open and stretches, the finished jacket will fit bust sizes: 30–34 (36–40, 42–46, 48–52)“ comfortably.
