Spring Jacket Knitalong
This pattern is part of the 2014 Knit-along Collection, which will be updated throughout the year as Artyarns’ Knitalongs are concluded.
With purchase of the collection, you will receive the updates with new patterns throughout the year at no additional cost.
I used 3 skeins of Beaded Mohair & Sequins color 1024 Metal in the multicolor, to knit this in the size I’m wearing (small). This is not a fitted jacket. The one in navy is using 3 skeins of Beaded Silk Light, color 903 Gold. If you prefer using a non-beaded yarn, sign up here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spring-jacket-knitalong-nonbeaded-version
Size Small (Medium, Large)
Measurements: 38 (45, 48)” around
Length: 27 (29, 34)” top of shoulder to bottom hem
Width of each front half: 9.5 (11.2, 12)”
Here’s what I anticipate in terms of yardage requirements:
size 32-36 = 330 yards (in yarn with sequins and beads) or 480 yards (in beaded yarn)
size 38-42= 440 yards (in yarn with sequins and beads) or 550 yards (in beaded yarn)
size 44-46 = 550 yards (in yarn with sequins and beads) or 700 yards (in beaded yarn)
Remember that this is knitted on very large needles in lace, and needs the weight of the beads and or beads and sequins to lay properly.
