Mantra Long Jacket pattern


A jacket of rayon bouclé and bamboo yarn that drapes flatteringly on the body with slimming sheer stripes of rayon only, a rolled collar lapel and stick closure. Variations can be made by combining similar shades for a solid look or contrasting colors for a random tweed. The one shown above was knit in China Red Bambu 7 and Cherry Skinny Majesty then overdyed on the lapels and cuffs after knitting to create an ombré effect before joining the pieces.
