Nicky Epstein's Little Red Jacket: My Mom's Latest Crochet Creation

My Mom is a bit more prolific with her fiber creations than me these days. While I'm still slogging through my Multnomah Shawl, she just finished crocheting Nicky Epstein's Little Red Jacket using an alpaca blend yarn by Sirdar. Reverse single crochet gives it texture.

The pattern is from Nicky Epstein's Crocheting On the Edge. Hubby gave it to me on my last birthday.

Of course, this book is all about the crochet edgings. The Little Red Jacket is about the ruffles.

Although the pattern is on Ravelry, there are no projects for the Little Red Jacket. It's only in one queue. I'll be uploading my Mom's to Ravelry soon.

Happy Crocheting!

I love that book! I just ordered it from Amazon because I saw it at our library and thought I'd make a few copies out of it....but I would've copied the entire book. There's also KNITTING ON THE EDGE that I'm thinking about, too. Love the little red jacket...too cute!

Oh, how did I miss this post? I love the red sweater. I'll have to check and see if my local library has that book. Thanks for commenting on Cameron's Blankie. I only wish I hadn't been making it on a deadline. Being pressured to get it done seemed to mean I made more mistakes...Have a wonderful weekend. Come find me on Ravelry.
