I got the front edging of the jacket finished. I decided to go with the red for the last 7 rounds. I like the way it turned out, though next to the black the Red Heart Love in Berry Red looks more like copper. But that’s ok. It took nearly a whole skein of it, so I’m glad it did it. now I have 2.5 skeins of black left to finish the sides. That should do it. I plan to put a final round of SC in black around the berry once it’s all finished.
It came to me that this would also make an interesting cape if one wore capes. Just leave off the sleeves and sew up the sides so as to leave armholes.
