The jacket uses a dk weight yarn and a mohair blend in the same color. It's not difficult to crochet but it can be tedious. It's made with a 4 row repeat and three of those rows are crocheted in either the front or back of the stitch. Unlike the Swirl it's worked from the inside out. It starts with a 61" flat piece that is later seamed on each end so that you have a open tube. Then you pick up stitches around the circumference and work out from there increasing every ten stitches on the mohair row. The only real complaint I have with the pattern is that flat piece. Crocheting it that way means that there are a bazillion ends to weave in! It would have been better to crochet each end in the round with the middle section crocheted flat. If I'd done nothing else but this jacket I'd have been finished. The jacket portion took me less than a month. This is on the schedule at the Knitting Boutique, but I doubt I'll make another. If DD#2 asks for it, I'll give it her rather than make another one.
I'll try to post a pic of me wearing it once Harold gets home.
