While I might have been quiet on my blog, I have been very busy in the pattern writing department (yippee!). This particular pattern has been available for a little while now, and it is already one of my most popular patterns (thank you lovely crafters!!) and I have made approximately a squillion of them so far :-) I can almost make them in my sleep now (it would be pretty handy to be able to crochet whilst sleeping, right?)
I like to try and write my patterns in LOTS of different sizes, so you can make one for all the little people in your life, and so you can keep using the same pattern and make a new jacket as your child grows :-) This one is available in sizes from newborn to 6 years! That's a lot of sizes!
It's a simple style, that is suitable for both boys and girls, and can be made with long or short sleeves. This pattern works just as well in cotton, for a Spring/Summer jacket, as it does in wool for a Winter/Autumn jacket. The simple design also means it the perfect "canvas" to play around with stripes or some gorgeous hand dyed yarn :-) And even an adventurous beginner could make this jacket in a few evenings! And did you know that I am always happy to help with any questions you have when making anything from my patterns. I promise you, there are never any silly questions :-) You can leave a comment here on my blog (I always get a notification so I don't miss any questions) or drop me a line via my Facebook page HERE
The Kotori Jacket pattern is available on Ravelry, Etsy & Craftsy!
I'm also thinking about making and adult version, with a bit of subtle waist shaping. What do you think?
What a terrific design - so stylish!ReplyDelete

Hi Shara, I bought the pattern for this sweet little jacket from Ravelry. I am having a go at the 9 month size. I have crocheted blankets but only a few clothing items, so relatively new at this and I am having a bit of trouble with the pattern and can't figure out where I'm going wrong. You begin with 44 chain then start on the 4th chain in, so that means 40 stitches. In this row you increase 4 times as far as I can tell--so that means you have 45 stitches...not 50 as stipulated in the pattern?? I am increasing by doing two stitches in the same chain. I would be grateful if you could tell me where I'm going wrong, Thanks, LesleyReplyDelete
Thanks for your quick reply to Facebook message. I'm all sorted now, was doing the wrong increase. Much appreciation! LesleyReplyDelete
