The Swing Jacket Pattern is ready!!
Shown here is Sue’s Swing Jacket with 3/4 length sleeves! She used only a little more than 2 skeins of Bernat Soft Boucle, with a single strand, to make her sample in size X-large! I think it just looks great on her!
I am switching to E-Junkie so you can also use this link to buy this pattern:
My original sample, in the medium size,(shown below) is made with 2 skeins of Lion Brand Homespun, and I had about two yards of yarn left after seaming it up!
So here are the details:
· Yellow Knifty Knitter loom or other large gauge loom with minimum of 41 pegs.
· 350-600 yards of Bulky Weight Yarn of your choice. XS, S&M need 350-370 yards for short sleeve version; L&XL will need up to 550 yards for short sleeve version.
· Knitting Tool
· Tapestry Needle
2 stitches, and 3 rows per inch.
XS(S, M, L, XL) Bust measurement 28-30(32-34, 36-38, 40-42, 44-46) There are directions in the pattern for customizing the fit and length of the sweater. If you need to make a size larger than stated simply follow the custom size directions and use the XL directions for the armholes and sleeves. And don’t forget to add on another ball of yarn so you don’t run out! Hey if you don’t use it you can always return it!
