From ‘Jean Frost Jackets’: I designed this jacket a few years ago using the stitch pattern featured on the cover of Mary Walker Phillips’ book of knitted counterpanes. When I saw this stitch, I knew I had to use it in a jacket. I have worn my jacket shopping, to luncheons, and in the evenings to dinner and the theatre. I love its versatility.
