What you will need
Quick note on the ribbon, at the time of publishing Darn Good Yarn currently has 2 types of ribbon that differ by the width of the ribbon thereby effect the length of the ribbon per skein (since it’s sold by weight). You want to choose the recycled silk sari ribbons that have 180ft per 100g skein.
Darn Good Yarn will also offer kits for the 2 sizes of this jacket. Both sizes will need two 100g skeins of Lux Adventure Recycled Silk Yarn.
For the smaller jacket, which fits a size S-L, you will need nine skeins of Darn Good Yarn’s Recycled Silk Ribbon.
For the larger jacket, which fits a XL-XXL, you will need fourteen skeins of Darn Good
Yarn’s Recycled Silk Ribbon.
Size 6 (4mm) straight needles: These needles are for the collar created in Lux Adventure Recycled Silk Yarn. Your gauge should be 4 sts per inch.
Size 11 (8mm) circular needles with at least 3 feet of cord. You will be working back and forth as if they were straight needles but the long length helps give you enough wiggle room to keep your project on one set of needles. This is where a pair of interchangeable needles would work brilliantly. You gauge should be 3 sts per inch. The height isn’t critical since you are measuring as you go (versus the method of making ―x‖ number of rows).
A needle with a huge eye. If you order the kit I’ll put one in there for free.
