Crochet Penelope Jacket

Crochet Penelope Jacket

Melissa chose a different combination of Trendsetter’s Bacopa and Luna for her crochet version of the Penelope Jacket. The neckline on this design is a little wider, and the jacket is shorter in length than the knit version but features the same front pockets and turn-back cuffs on the sleeves. Using a size L US crochet hook is an indication that this jacket will work up quickly. By adding a few more balls of yarn, you can easily lengthen this jacket.

SIZES: Jacket is sized to fit Women’s Small (Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large).

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

Bust 34 (38V2, 43, 48, 51)"

Length 20 (201/2, 21, 211/2, 211/2)"
