Zig-Zag Jacket

Lion Brand® Imagine (Old)

GAUGE:

Each pat rep = 4 inches (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Zig-Zag Jacket Reviewed by Dace Liepins on 2010-09-21 *****
Great jacket, quick to work up. I didn't do the collar as is, just finished by filling in the triangles and then doing a couple rounds of single crochet around to unify the line a bit.

Didn't try to match the colors in the picture, however did the thicker stripe in Vanna's Choice Toffee and the thinner in Vanna's Choice Honey. The sleeves as made in the pattern were a little long for me so I had to fiddle with those a bit, however very nice pattern to work overall.

Thanks, Lion Brand for a neat pattern!
