Machine knit Rose jacket.

My dear old mother asked me for a knit jacket!

She wanted something that would be perfect for this time of the year. You know, when you don't feel like wearing a coat anymore but a light cardigan isn't quite warm enough...

Well, she explained the type of jacket she wished for, chose the color (to go with a favorite skirt) and the wool yarn. Then,  after taking her measurements, I went to the Passap and machine knit a rather basic, plain jacket.  But, since my mother is anything but plain, I went nuts and did some a lot of duplicate stitching with embroidery wool!!! :-)

The flowers were inspired  by many  pictures and cross stitch patterns.

Have I told you that I love to decorate plain knits with duplicate stitching?

It fits her and she loves it, but it still needs to be blocked!
