Hug-Me-Tight Fan Lace Jacket Wrap

HeartStrings knitting pattern #H16

The concept for this cover-up was based on a vintage garment style. However, this design is updated with a modern-day relaxed fit and easy-knitting circular construction.

This clever wrap begins simply as a large piece of circular knitting. The magic is in the unique way of binding off to create a semi-fitted short jacket with rounded hemline. The result is similar to a bolero, except with a more feminine look, a softer shape and short sleeves. The design features a lovely fan-shaped lace and twisted stitch pattern, self-trimmed edging and a touch of beads to complete the understated look of this gracious garment.

Hug-Me-Tight Fan Lace Jacket Wrap. The vintage hug-me-tight garment style updated with  modern-day relaxed fit and easy knitting, no-sewing circular construction.
Shown in Jade Sapphire Silk Cashmere, colorway #35 Sterling.
