Pattern Description from Marnie MacLean.com: “When I think of Valentine’s Day, I almost always think of chocolate and pink, in that order. Fuzzy Valentine is all that and love to boot. Tryst is made with silk and Marino wool which is warm, soft and decadent. Starry Night is thick, plush and soft with glints of shimmer. Combined, the yarns work up into a piece that nearly hugs you. This pattern is offered in chart form. While this may seem intimidating if you’ve never worked from a chart, I think you’ll find it easier in the long run, as you get a visual idea of what the piece will look like. Further, it allows you the option to work up the jacket in separate piece or as on whole, in the round.”

Supplies:

  • #6 & #7 Circular needles at least 30” long
  • 450 grams (9 skeins) of Tryst in Chocolate Brown or color of choice
  • 250 grams (5 skeins) of Starry Night in pink or color of choice
  • G crochet hook
  • 2 large covered hook and eye
  • Pom Pom tool (optional)

Yarn Substitution: Tryste is a wool/silk blend boucle yarn, in a light worsted/heavy sport weight. Almost any light worsted weight yarn will make a fine substitution, though I highly recommend one with at least some elastic or wool content.

Starry night is a thick eyelash yarn with some sparkle. Any substitute eyelash yarn should be quite dense or be doubled to achieve a similar effect.
