Shelley’s Lace Jacket Redux

Once again, I’ve been busy re-knitting one of my older styles.

When I do this, I sometimes find a new way of working the item or just that a different yarn gives the piece a new life.

In this rendition of Shelley’s Lace Jacket,  I  used Cascade Cotton Rich in the worsted weight instead of the DK I used previously.  Here she is waiting to be assembled:shelleypieces

And here she is completed:

What’s not to like?
