Christmas present

This jacket is the "Mandarin Jacket" from Crochet! magazine November 2007. The yarn is Lion Brand Kool Wool (50% merino, 50% acrylic) in "Navy" and "Denim." This yarn is discontinued, which is a shame. It has great stitch definition, is easy to work with, nice twist, very warm (in spite of being "kool"), soft and non-itchy to people who are sensitive to that. I needed a few more skeins of Navy to finish and was lucky to find it on Ebay!

The frogs are one of the things that make the jacket interesting. These were from Windsor Button Shop.

And here is the recipient in the jacket....


  1. It's beautiful! I'm glad I checked my blogger thingy to see if you had anything new. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm still waiting for the word to GO on the raglan sweater. =^_^=


  2. Glad you like it Sue! I am working on the 2nd prototype and should have a good pattern really soon!
