Northfield Two-Way Jacket






I was searching around the web last night - OK, I self googled again - and I found 2 really exciting things.... here is the first, the second I will share on Monday.

The Northfield Two-Way Jacket I designed well over 2 years ago. It is made from Naturally Caron.com's Country and as the name suggests, it can be worn 2 different ways. I love the way Country crochets up, it feels so wonderful right against your skin, so this piece would be a great addition to your wardrobe as you can wear it for 3 seasons.

And get this..... the pattern is available on the Michael's website for FREE!!!! I don't want to get ahead of myself, but it may even be one of those tear-off patterns that you get at the store by the yarn, and you know what? Being a tear-off sheet would be really really sexy!!!

See? Even Otis is excited!

I like this jacket too...I could use a diagram or sketch though. I'm unsure where to start the back from the first front. Thanks!

Hello:

I found this pattern on naturallycaron.com and would love to make it, but I'm having a hard time getting the gauge - 5-1/4 V-stitches and 9-1/2 rows to 4". When I have 9-1/2 rows, I have over 7 V-stitches. Also, this gauge doesn't seem to match the dimensions on the diagram they provide. Do you have any hints for getting the right gauge? Thanks, Jenny

I also could use a diagram for this pattern. I've started it multiple times and without even a drawing of how the armholes should progress and where exactly the decreases are happening it's difficult to proceed.

Also, from the meager progress I can make with this pattern, it looks huge! However, it's unclear whether I'm looking at the length or the width.

Meg-

Please go to the NaturallyCaron.com website and get the pattern from there, it has a schematic.
