Cocoon Jacket

I adapted this pattern to my weight of yarn and size of jacket from a pattern I received from Gloria Johnson in Dayton, Ohio. Now I’m knitting another. The inset photo shows the new colorway. I’m using a silk/wool blend yarn that is a bit finer than DK weight. The knitting starts at one side and is worked to the other side using the linen stitch. This stitch lies flat and drapes nicely using a larger than expected needle size—U.S.#9. This is a great project for times when I want to keep my hands busy but don’t want to concentrate on my work.
