Fiddlesticks Knitting Patterns and Yarns
Lorelei is a maidenly little jacket to wear over skirts or jeans. Choose Cream for a demure look, Ebony for a dressy look, or a bright colour for fun! Lace panels featuring Japanese stitch patterns (large charts are provided) add a special touch, but all shaping is easily worked in the stocking stitch areas.
The body is worked in one piece to the armholes, then fronts and back are worked separately. Sleeves are worked flat. A simple crochet edging (photographic instructions provided) finishes the garment. Recommended for Intermediate lace knitters.
Sample knit in Size 1 (33 inches).
