This jacket has a very easy diagonal lace that is threaded with a novelty ribbon. A braid tie closes the neck, and the sleeves are 3/4 length. The length here is slightly cropped, but can also be hip length. I worked crab st around the edges, but they can also be done in garter stitch.
Suggested Yarn: Plymouth Fantasy Naturale(The actual color was teal--didn't come through in photo), Lion Brand Cotton.
