Five-Yarn Jacket

Lion Brand® Glitterspun® (old) - Trellis® - Incredible® - Moonlight Mohair - Microspun

GAUGE:

11 stitches = 4" (10.2 cm) using 11/L hook 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Slip each of the five skeins of yarn into separate ziplock bags to keep them from getting tangled as you crochet.
2. Work 1 row of A, 1 row of B, 1 row of C, 1 row of D, and 1 row of E for color sequence.
Repeating the 5 rows of color sequence, work 4-row repeat of pattern stitch.
3. Always pick up last loop of stitch with new color, then chain as directed for turning chain.
It is not necessary to fasten off colors after each row; carry yarns loosely up sides of work.
4. Be sure that you pick up the same amount of stitches on left and right fronts.
5. When sewing seams, be sure that carried yarns are hidden inside garment.

Five-Yarn Jacket Reviewed by J on 2011-10-27 ****
I really love the look of this jacket. I'm going to attempt to modify it to fit a medium. I'm concerned with picking out the yarn. It seems the texture is very important to the overall look, but I need to purchase less expensive yarn. I'll update once finished as I'm excited to try this out.
