Zig zag jacket 502
I love this pattern! I used 15-20 different LEFTOVERS! 1 or 2 balls of each colour, sometimes only enough for a few rows. BUT, Noro yarn or any self striping yarn would be equally spectacular. This was fun to knit. Not fast by my standards, but very entertaining. The collar is folded and hemmed to the inside to create a facing. Most of the yarn ends will be encased inside the double thickness of the collar.
