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.
● Erika Knight Fur Wool, 97% wool/3% nylon, 100g/40m/44yds
Shade: Pitch 09 x 7 (8, 9) balls
● 10mm hook
● 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 yarn’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 – you will simply get a less stiff, dense fabric.
