Hannah Gilet by Ruby McGrath
Find the pattern in issue 74 of Inside Crochet magazine.
This fun wool gilet is just the thing for some extra warmth on country outings.
â— Erika Knight Fur Wool, 97% wool/3% nylon, 100g/40m/44yds
Shade: Pitch 09 x 7 (8, 9) balls
â— 10mm hook
â— Yarn needle
Any chunky or chunky fur yarn will substitute here. Lang Yarns Softhair or Lion Brand Pelt (both available from www.loveknitting.com) would work well, and both have a similar yardage in a 50g ball to the Erika Knight yarnâ€™s 100g. You could also experiment with the drape using a chunky yarn, such as Wendy Eider, as the furriness of the yarn will hide the stitches â€“ you will simply get a less stiff, dense fabric.
