Kilim jacket: the remake
Kilim jacket by Kaffe Fassett
Gigantasorous (around 160cm)
Needles & yarn
US 10 - 6.0 mm

The original jacket is shown in the pictures at the bottom. I have had it in my cupboard for about ten years - since around June 2000. I have worn it about 6 times. It was hot and heavy for Sydney (except for a few days each winter), but worse, it was a really dated, 80s kind of style which doesn’t suit my body shape. Recently I decided to do something about that.

I cut off the bottom bands, letting the oversized style swing free. The photographs here show how I did that (from the bottom up), and you can check the 2 blog posts linked here for more detail.
