design by Debbie Bliss based on an original idea by Melody Griffiths.

Knotty textures mix with intricate black stranded patterns against regal tones of violet and gold in this captivating jacket, knit in Rialto DK. Textured sections –rib and garter stitch, edged with bobbles and triangle shaping– are used brilliantly to suggest pleating at the shawl collar and along the bottom and sleeve edges.
