Approximately 35 years ago I wove a cloth. The colours were modern 🙂 Dark brown and orange (and off white)!! When I finished weaving…I could not decide what to do with it.

After all those years I thought ‘enough is enough’.
I threw it in the washing machine and dryer and knew it would extremely felt.

The lining was bought and the pattern chosen.

The buttons are only for the show.

I had a lot of yarn.  Six balls each 50 gr. and each ball was approximately 400 m. / Lana Grossa: Lace Merino Print, 100% Merino Extrafine.

In the meantime at the backside there was a huge hole from a screw in my loom (was very busy climbing in and out of it). But that was easy to repair because of my knitting ‘top-down’.
I was able to adjust the seam at the same time. I lengthened the pattern.

Look at this beautiful yarn….it was a present….
