Mulberry Silk Jacket
A short sleeve jacket for summer, made in silk, hence lovely to wear. The divine lace weight Jaipur Fino from BC Garn in a moss color is my choice. The lucina shell pattern gives a delicate expression perfect for the silk yarn. The cardigan is knitted in pieces and seamed for the best fit. The frontband has both a garter stitch part and a stockinette stitch part which is left to roll.
