I made this jacket last year based on the Burdastyle 11/2010 #131 Short Jacket pattern.
I had this fabric in my stash since forever, because I was too scared to touch it, since it was the most expensive fabric I ever bought in my life. That being said, I’m not really sure what it is. Mohair maybe.
I made this because I wanted to practice a lace stitch, which I’d never done before. Very simple pattern, from Free Vintage Knitting – it’s just a rectangle that you sew together along the sides to make the sleeves.
This was a quick portable project, very easy and I love the look! I made it in 4 days while commuting and finished it watching a soccer game. Here’s the link to the pattern @ Ravelry and a couple pics of me wearing it:
