I have made a skirt out of this pattern, so I needed a matching jacket…
Notes on the jacket construction: Levenwick cardi technique was used to construct this jacket. Sts numbers were adjusted to 113% from the original Levenwick pattern to accommodate this particular yarn.
Seed stitch all over with garter borders. The lace part was taken from E and F charts (eyelets and feather part only).
If you are wondering about the wooden jewelry box on the picture, my father carved it out for me with hand tools (knife and a sand paper) for a present. It took him about 2 months to make it.
