Vintage Crochet Dressing Jacket


14 ozs. BEEHIVE Shetland Floss
A No. 8 Celluloid Crochet Hook
2 1/2 yds. Ribbon


This light and graceful jacket is made in one length (of crazy stitch) like a shawl, the collar being formed by turning back the two corners of a slit-like opening in one of the long sides, and the cuffs by similarly treating the corners of the opposite side, while fastening them at the folded points.


The Center

Commence with 170 chain.

1st Row - Miss 3 ch., 3 tr. in the next stitch, miss 3 ch., 1 d.c. in the next, * 3 ch., 3 tr. in the same stitch as the d.c., miss 3 ch., 1 d.c. in the next, repeat from * to the end of the row, turn.

2nd Row - 3 ch., 3 tr. in the d.c. made at the end of the last row. * 1 d.c. in the top of the loop made by the 3 ch. in the group below, 3 ch., 3 tr. in the same chain loop into which the d.c. has just been worked, repeat from * to the end of the row, ending with a 1 d.c. in the last loop, turn.

Repeat the last row until the work measures 27 inches.

In the next row, make the division for the neck as follows:

Work to the last 7 groups, then make 28 ch., turn; work back 7 groups (as described in the 1st row) along the chain and continue the pattern to the end of the row. Continue on these stitches for the second half, until a further 27 inches have been worked from the division for the neck.

The Edging

1 d.c. * miss half an inch along the work, 10 tr. in the next stitch, miss half an inch along the work, 1 d.c. in the next stitch, repeat from * all around.

2nd Row - 1 d.c. in the first stitch * 3 or 4 ch., miss a stitch, 1 d.c. in the next stitch, repeat from * all round. Fasten off.

To Make Up The Dressing Jacket

To form the collar, turn back the points at each side of the opening for the neck. For the cuffs, turn back the corners of the long side opposite the collar, folding them over and fastening at the folded points, while leaving sufficient room through which to pass the hands.

Finish off with dainty bows.
