Le Faon Jacket (Digital Pattern)
The Le Faon jacket is an easy and fun introduction to Tunisian crochet garments and shaping. This pattern also includes video tutorials (for both right AND left handed crocheters!) to help you with certain techniques.
Available in sizes from newborn to 6 years, you will have all your little ones covered!
The pattern also includes helpful information on simple striping, without millions of yarn ends to weave in! Both short and long sleeved options.
This is a TUNISIAN crochet pattern, and does require a Tunisian/Afghan hook with a flexible cable as the jacket is made from the top down in one piece. The pattern is available in both British/Australian crochet terms AND U.S. crochet terms :-)
- 4.5mm Tunisian crochet hook with a 40-60cm cable
- 8 ply or DK weight yarn (amounts listed with each size)
- 4 removable stitch markers 3 x 15mm button
- Tapestry needle to weave in yarn ends
