Dawn's Early Light Jacket

Gena Greene's inspiration for this multicolor stripey jacket came from Laura Militzer Bryant's Knitting with Novelty Yarns, a book we recommend even to non-knitters as "eye candy." Although the book was meant to inspire knitters to make things with Prism Yarns, Gena's intention was to use up the last of some unusual multicolor acrylic yarn left over from other projects. What she did was strand it together with other cotton, mohair, wool, and acrylic yarns in a chunky blouson jacket that's both fluffy-soft and snowproof.

Size: 36-40", 5'4"-5'8"

Care: We recommend hand washing and drying flat to preserve the fluff, but this jacket will survive machine laundering. (It will "pill" if scrubbed or agitated, though.)

Price: $125 for the jacket, $5 for shipping
