a sundry of sequins, and colors as accent. Lots of colors and fun using MCY's different yarns. Some are special order.
The Pattern is by Christine Bylsma and is called Crayon Box Jacket
her website is www.chrisbylsmadesigns.com
The pattern is extremely well written and is a dream to work. I had a lot of fun creating my own look which she is so kind as to call you a designer when you work your own yarns.
The pattern on her site is $8.00 and well worth the cost for such a lovely jacket.
