Update number 3 on the Granny Jacket
You can catch up on the basic granny square, and updates number 1 and update number 2 so you know where we are at.
Here is the finished jacket with a border of five rows single crochet on both sleeves and the front and bottom edge.
There is a square folded into a triangle for the arm gusset which gives it a bit more room.
Buttons or Toggles
This week I was at my local yarn store (LYS) and looked for suitable buttons for the jacket.
i want to have something a bit chunky and I was really looking for a natural wood or toggle type button.
I still haven’t decided just how many buttons I’ll need maybe three or five. I always choose an odd number it is somehow more visually satisfying to have a non even number.
This jacket has worked out well. It is slightly heavier than I had imagined and it will be really good on colder days, which is fine as winter draws on.
I like the granny square look and will probably do another one without sleeves in the taupe colour and lighter accent colours for the spring.
The pocket is a good feature and I’m even thinking of making an inside pocket higher up for my phone, you know.
