Kid's Crochet Jacket
"Created with only single crochet and chains, this crochet jacket works up super quickly even for advanced beginners! This crochet jacket is made using DK weight yarn, which is a category #3 on the Craft Yarn Council’s Yarn Weight System. It’s a nice weight for a light jacket since it’s warm but still has nice drape and not too warm. I’m thinking fall here. (Finally!) You can use any DK yarn that gets gauge. I chose an acrylic yarn because I’m sure this will need washing and most acrylics are easy to care for (and don’t shrink). Wool or a blend would also be a great choice as it is outerwear. Cotton would make for a more spring season top. Yarn: Paintbox Yarns Simply DK: 2 (3, 4, 4) balls Midnight Blue (MC), 1 ball Champagne White (CC).
