Knits for You and Your Home
The tumbling, rippling lapels of this soft unstructured jacket echo the undulations of water, hence its name. Made in a blended yarn of baby alpaca and silk, the jacket is so warming and enveloping that you simply will not ever want to take it off. Worked in stocking stitch, with moss stitch borders for just a hint of texture, this garment only needs minimal shaping so is a breeze to make. And the roomy patch pockets are the perfect hiding place for indulgent treats.
