Drifted Snow

a textured jacket


$6.00

 

You are off to Grandma’s house on another adventure and you want to look your best. No ordinary sweater will do for your trip through the woods, especially when the temperature drops. This jacket is knit seamlessly from the bottom up using chunky yarn and an easy-to-knit combination of garter, stockinette and rib ridge stich. The texture and fitted hood make it super cozy. This is a quick knit with plenty of warmth for cold winter days. So bundle up, hop in the sleigh, and watch out for drifted snow.
