Amazing Jacket in Opal Petticoat.

This amazing jacket is designed and knitted by an skillfull danish knitter, Inger Nelleman. I just had to show all of you this master piece. Inger told me that the jacket is knitted on 3mm needles with 500g of Opal Petticoat and a small amount of offwhite.

I hope I one day will knit something similar. After seing this jacket I purchased two books: "Dazzling knitz" by Patricia Werner and "Module magic" by Ginger Luters. Both books contain patterns of similar jackets but with much coarser yarn. So when I feel ready you know I can start, I do have the yarn to accomplish this.

Den är jättesnygg! Dominotekniken har inte tilltalat mig, men den här oregelbundna varianten är vacker. Din wraparound ser härlig ut. Är det egen design eller färdig modell?

Eva, Beautiful jacket. Opal Petticoat is my favorite yarn. I have some and am saving it until I get a little better at my sock knitting skills. (Only made 3 pair so far.) I, like you, also love Opal. Wish I owned as much as you do! I'm working on it. Happy Knitting, Marianne
