ROUND YOKE SHORT JACKET CROCHET PATTERN

A close-fitted classic with round yoke!
Originally I called this pattern Chanel-Style Jacket with round yoke, be-course of the short and shaped tailoring. Then I had an e-mail from the Chanel-Trademark-Patrol (Yes there is one!!), telling me this was absolutely not legal!!
So designers; Be aware of what you call your patterns! Stay away from famous brands as part of your pattern-name!
I’m very fascinated by round yokes, so finally I've made my own! 
I'm very happy with the final jacket!
Love how the round yoke turned out!
PATTERN HERE

Detail of back.


I love the colored dot-pattern on hem-line and sleeves!
Gives an extra touch to the simple shape.

NEW CROCHET-PATTERS!!

I've been kind of lazy lately, and have not posted my latest patterns, shame!!
And worse, I have not answered all the nice comments in here! Sorry!!
The summer has come to Italy, but in other parts of the world it's still winter!
So let's start with the Fair Isle Slipper-Boots for Adults

Finally the adult-version of the Kids Fair Isle-Boots! 
Worked with a simple one/piece toe/up method.
Easy knit-like pattern.
Tweed effect achieved by holding light- and dark grey yarn together.

The basic slippers, fresh off the hook!

OPTIONAL: Surface colored stitches, fun and easy to work,
with an awesome Nordic look! Instruction included in pattern!
