Turkish Carnation jacket

This is Gena Greene's interpretation of the Turkish Carnation jacket from Kaffe Fassett's Glorious Knitting...not quite as fitted or as fashion-forward as the version shown on the cover of the 1985 British edition of that book.

(Click here to see the fabulous Fassett web site; click here to find Glorious Knitting on Amazon. It's available as a Fair Trade Book, as well, for $5 + $5 shipping and Fassett or his charity gets $1, if you want to support the Fair Trade Books system.)

Size: 32-36", 5'5"-5'8"

Material: A mix of everything--but mostly acrylic.

Care: We recommend hand washing and drying flat to preserve the colors, but the garment will probably stand up to machine laundering.

Price: $95 + $5 shipping
