Viewpoints 1514 From Folly Cove - Burton Hills Jacket PDF
The Burton Hills Jacket from the Classic Elite Viewpoints From Folly Cove collection is a warm & cozy button-front jacket with a shawl collar. The body is knit in modular units composed of short rows, in one piece to the armholes, then the fronts and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The shawl collar is worked separately, then sewn in.
From the Designer: "Virginia Lee Burton Demetrios was an ingenious illustrator, rendering scenes in her stories full of detail and activity that could keep a child’s eyes busy for hours. One of her signatures was to frame the scene in the landscape with stacks of hilly shapes receding into the background. I was always intrigued by the road leading away into the depth of the pictures in my favorite books of hers, The Little House and The Song of Robin Hood. The short row motifs in the Burton Hills Coat are a knitterly interpretation, worked here in the natural colors of Blackthorn."
