12. Studded Knitted Jacket

100 Objects

This jacket is hand knitted in an indigo cotton yarn of double knitting weight, designed to fade with washing, and to shrink by 5% in the first wash. It is an adult woman size. The jacket is fastened with silvery metal buttons and decorated with silvery metal studs and sequins, mainly on the yoke. The jacket appears in Party Knits by Melody Griffiths and Lesley Stanfield, published in 2007. The pattern introduction says: “Get a touch of country and western glamour with this shaped and fitted, studded and spangled, denim knit.” This jacket is almost certainly the garment made and photographed for the book as the placement of the studs and sequins is identical on both.
