Japanese Lace Jacket
I discovered this beautiful Japanse Lace pattern in a stich manual. I have designed a vintage a-line jacket in cream colored Amoretto, a lovely mixture of alpaca and cotton which emphasises the delicate lace pattern. The long puffed sleeves adorn your hands. All parts are worked flat and seamed together.
Increased sts on the sleeve are knitted as the first 5 sts of the Japanese Lace. When armhole shaping begins, the pattern is changed to the same 5 sts of the Japanese Lace on the back and on the fronts and remaining additional sts are knitted in rev st st. Sleeves are extra long, adjust if you prefer, and worked first to learn the Japanese Lace pattern.
Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows in st st measures 10 cm square.
