Knitting Lingerie Style. The Ravelry page with other iterations of this gorgeous piece is here and my Ravelry page project link for it is here. I knit it out of a cotton (Cascade Yarns Luna in Red #707) and I'm really happy with the look and the drape. It's such a sweet, comfy, old-fashioned thing to have a Bed Jacket to wear over nightgowns. It will be warm and cozy on our cold, snowy nights here in the mountains and frankly I'm jealous. I'd make myself one, but frankly this thing required so much seaming and so many fiddly little finishing techniques (it took about 8 hours to steam and seam all the parts together, crochet the edging and embroider over the seams) -- I think I'll pass. If my younger daughter eventually asks for one, I guess I'll have to do it again, but otherwise I'd prefer to just admire this one and let it go at that.
Ironically, the one day I had 8 hours to spend all in one sitting was actually last Friday, April 1st -- my sister Kate's birthday. So I think the jacket really is a tribute to Kate in its own way.
It really is quite lovely and opened up, it has quite a gorgeous "winged" look. The entire thing is one big circle and the lacy edging is quite dramatic.
