Designed for my Granddaughters during the Coronavirus lockdown, this little jacket represents fun and freedom to play outside again :-
Made to be worn throughout the year, this warm and snuggly little jacket will bring much joy and smiles to everyone around.
I have designed the jacket “all in one piece” ! There are no seams or making up to do, only the appliques to sew on once the Jacket is finished.
I have used a soft Aran weight yarn (USA Worsted) for the jacket and 4 colours of DK weight (USA light worsted) for the appliques, a great pattern for using up your yarn scraps!
I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did 😊
For the Jacket - Aran weight yarn (USA Worsted) – Most similar Aran yarns will work with this pattern.
I have used 2 different yarn brands for each Jacket to get the colours I wanted.
Turquoise Jacket - King cole Comfort Aran 100g (Surf blue)
Purple Jacket – King cole Comfort Aran 100g (Lavender)
Pink Jacket - Stylecraft Special Aran 100g (Fondant pink)
Appliques – I used Stylecraft DK Colours: Pomegranate, Grass green, Fondant, Citron (and King cole - Surf). You may use yarn scraps of DK you may already have for the appliques.
