"Create an all-season classic by knitting this lovely jacket in a soft and supple yarn," says Love. "The pattern suggests a worsted weight nubby cotton that works up quickly and insures drape in all the right places. It can be worn open for a casual shawl effect, or transformed into a portrait collar shrug with the strategic placement of your favorite brooch. The gentle flounce, worked on circular needles, creates a graceful and feminine silhouette." This is a beautiful design with a wonderful pattern to go with it. Sleeves and shoulders are joined with a three-needle bind-off, for no sewing!
