Ellen's Coming Home Set
This pattern is in English.
Ellen’s Coming Home Set consists of a jacket, pants and a bonnet.
The top is a wrap-style jacket, worked back and forth top-down. It is closed with buttons along the left side. The button bands consist of 5 sts of rib and are worked in one piece with the jacket, so you do not have to pick up sts at the end. The pants are worked top-down and shaped with short rows in the back. The bonnet is worked first back and forth from the front towards the crown. The crown is worked in the round on double pointed needles and shaped with decreases. Then, sts are picked up along the neck border to work rib edge and lastly a tie is attached at the front.
