Crochet Jacket - Finished

I finally finished the crochet jacket last weekend.  It's been too hot to wear it and take some photos until today, so here they are. 

The pattern is from DROPS design and is actually called 118-25 Jacket with fan pattern in ”Muskat”.  It's available for free here

The yarn I used was James C. Brett ripple, which is double knitting weight.  This yarn is horrible to knit with - it tangles and knots very easily - but was lovely to crochet with.  I used 16 x 50g balls - I had originally bought 20 balls for £10 - so the jacket was very economical. 

The jacket looks grey in colour from a distance but it is actually a combination of greens, pinks and blues with a slight sheen to them.  It looks lovely close up. 

Having used 16 balls it is quite weighty - but this makes it feel quite cosy. 

All in all, I'm pleased with the result - a very nice jacket for wearing this Autumn.
