One of the easiest jackets to make..just one giant granny square folded in half and the seams sewn up leaving 6" holes for your arms to go through.
Use a spaces dyed yarn of change colour every round, perfect for those winter snuggles
Square at 400g. 32"
Got to a metre, using just under 600 grams of yarn...
sewed up the seams and tried it on....
JAMES C BRETT STONEWASH would be perfect for this project....
Love those 3 colours the best from the range
The end one with orange in, is the nearest to the colour I used back in 2014 is col. SW3
My favourite of the new colours is the middle one with a soft butter yellow in Col. SW2
Pink/lilac one is Col. SW5
All the shades make a fabulous granny square too
Beautiful to crochet with no splitting,a lovely twist to it and such beautiful soft colours
Giant granny square worked in reverse rounds, to keep you square a perfect square with no swing to the way you are crocheting, it also makes for a reversible granny square so the roll of the neck line wont be the wrong side when you wear it.
