WEBS DIR08 Crocheted Goshen Jacket by Doris Chan

$4.99 – $5.49

Countless admirers will be wondering how you made the amazing Crocheted Goshen Jacket by Doris Chan, from our Designer in Residence series. Inspired by a fortune cookie, this jacket is composed of thirty-three lacy square motifs assembled into what is essentially a V-shaped wrap, except folded at the shoulders and connected along the sides using a join-as-you-go technique. Rib-textured cuffs and band give the jacket wearable comfort. Soft, lustrous Valley Yarns Goshen is perfect for a season-spanning layer. And if you don’t feel like messing with this jacket construction, you can use the motif to make your own design, leaving the V-shape wrap unconnected, or create a simple rectangular stole.
