The Big Easy

This book is all about smart, flattering designs using larger gauge yarns. I'm especially drawn to this chic riding jacket in the Luxury Tweed Chunky. Its slimming hourglass shape looks great on all body types, and it's worked entirely in easy garter stitch. Makes a nice alternative to the Einstein coat, for those of you who would like a different silhouette. A medium takes just 10 skeins.

This Cape Coat is another option in the same yarn that's more easy fitting - perfect for transitional weather, or when you just don't want to wear a real coat. Lacrosse games, walks in the crisp autumn air, or window shopping downtown - like on First Fridays in Leonardtown.

The Lace Jacket shows that lace doesn't have to be fussy. Worked on size 15 needles (yes, I said size 15) this jacket is quick, and fun to knit with a flattering bit of waist shaping.
