The concept for
HeartStrings' Hug-Me-Tight Fan Lace Jacket Wrap was based on a vintage
garment style. However, this design is updated with a modern-day relaxed
fit and easy-knitting circular construction.
This clever wrap
begins simply as a large piece of circular knitting. The magic is in the unique
way of binding off to create a semi-fitted short jacket with rounded hemline.
The result is similar to a bolero, except with a more feminine look, a softer
shape and short sleeves. The design features a lovely fan-shaped lace and
twisted stitch pattern, self-trimmed edging and a touch of beads to complete the
understated look of this gracious garment.
Sized for petite/small,
medium/large and extra-large. Lace weight or light fingering weight yarn.
Knitting needles size US 5 (3.75 mm) suggested. Size 6/0 (4 mm) glass seed
