My Finished Project: Crochet Linked Jacket

March 20th, 2013

Zontee's finished cardi

A few years ago, I met the super-talented Robyn Chachula, a crochet designer whose background in engineering gives her projects a wonderfully architectural logic. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know Robyn better, and she’s always making crochet easy to understand through great charts and schematics.

As an admirer both of architecture and crochet, I couldn’t resist working up one of the fantastic patterns from her book Simply CrochetPictured is my version of Robyn’s Linked Jacket, worked in our Martha Stewart Crafts™ Extra Soft Wool Blend with a clasp from Gita Maria.

I love that simply through choosing my yarn and by selecting my own closure, I’ve made this pattern my own–that’s really one of the great joys of crocheting and knitting your own clothes.

If you’re interested in learning more about Robyn’s designs, check out these interviews with her:

    If I am not mistaken, I remember meeting you in a Vogue Knitting Live event last year in New York. You were representing Lion Brand. Sorry if it was not you. Every one in the Lion Brand booth were very nice and friendly. Love your jacket!

      Not sure if we met, as of course we meet a lot of people at these events, but thanks for stopping by the booth and for the compliment!
