Today I'm doing a little feature on Ja Ja, from our lovely Drift Collection. Ja Ja is a beautiful swing jacket by Åsa Tricosa, which is absolutely nailed by the details involved - there's Åsa's own Ziggurat method which first of all ensures a great fit across the neck and shoulders; there's the tuck on the back, which makes the jacket swing; there's the pockets, which are a good size without adding bulk; there's the double-knitted hemming for the button band, lower hem, and sleeve hems; oh and the sleeve hems are asymmetrical; and there's the super-cool buttonholes (ideal forlarge feqture buttons). All this with the glimpses of contrast colour throughout - this may look like a pretty simple stocking stitch jacket, but it is far more than that. There are techniques which will challenge you in this pattern, but I assure you everyone who sees this jacket is mesmerised by it, and it is such a joy to wear!  Here are some links for you Pattern page on Ravelry Buy the Ebook on Ravelry Buy the single print pattern Buy the print book (print copies have digital download codes inside) Yarn is here And here's the Lookbook (which is basically a book preview) Don't forget we've also got a Driftalong KAL/CAL (#Driftalong) happening over on the ECY Ravelry group, and everyone is welcome. ALSO the yarn comes with a 10% discount when you buy ten or more balls (ie 500g or more). Photo 22-08-2015 16 34 24
