Pattern - Asthall
This beautiful asymmetric jacket features a stunning Japanese Feather pattern on the lower body and cuffs. The remainder of the body is knitted in stocking stitch making it a relatively quick knit. Raglan shaping and a square neckline create an extremely flattering fit. Finish with a decorative brooch or pin.
The body is knitted from the bottom up in one piece. The sleeves are knitted separately and then joined to the body when raglan shaping is then worked at armholes. A great way to learn to work lace. Knitted in Excelana 4ply 100% british wool from Susan Crawford in Saharan Sand.
The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace sections.
Asthall is part of the Knits For A Cold Climate collection.
