This classic swing crochet jacket pattern, in sizes 0-18 months, is worked top down with minimal seaming – instructions are provided to eliminate seams completely by working sleeves in rounds instead of rows.
The design features a fitted top, a full skirt and flower shaped button fasteners.
The ‘skirt’ section is designed to finish mid- thigh but is adjustable for a custom length.
YOU WILL NEED: 400-800 m Aran yarn and a 4.50 mm hook for the jacket, 50 m 4ply (fingering) yarn and a 2.50 mm hook for the fasteners, 4 buttons and a needle for neatening ends.
Buttons used in sample measure 2 cm (3/4”) in diameter. Depending on the finished size of your fasteners, this may vary.
GAUGE: 13sts and 8 rows to 4” across spaced UK trebles (US double crochet).
Pattern is written in UK terms with a table of US equivalents provided as applicable.
