Giotto Jacket

Yarn: Colinette "Giotto" colourway Sahara

Source: Shipston Needlecraft

Pattern: from "Diana - La rivista per la maglia", bought in Sorrento

Needles: 9mm Addi Circs

Started: 4th June 2006
Finished: 30th January 2007

Notes: this yarn was originally a shapeless moss stitch cardigan, which I really didn't like. The yarn was reclaimed and became this jacket. Pattern calls for a huge button at the neck. I have used a hair slide because it was to hand.
