I’ve got a new yarn and a new project for you today! Caron Jumbo Ombre yarn just hit the shelves (and online stores) last week! It’s a gorgeous self-striping yarn that comes in an extra big ball! The granny stitch is one of my favorites and as I started to work up a square, it transformed into a super cute GRANNY JACKET! 3 large granny squares and 4 smaller granny squares joined together to make a hooded jacket. Almost unbelievable! Let me show you how it’s done!
First you will want to download the FREE pattern RIGHT HERE on Yarnspirations.com.
And don’t forget your supplies! Choose between 3 gorgeous colorways of Caron Jumbo Ombre Yarn. I am using color “White Water” but it also comes in “Carrera Marble” and “Salmon.” Shop the shades RIGHT HERE.
You will start by crocheting all the separate square. Let the yarn do the work for you! See the pretty transitions as the color stripes? Love the ombre look!
Once you get your squares made, let me show you how to connect them with the video tutorial below.
Creating arms is easy! You will leave a space open where you can crochet in rounds along the edges of two granny squares. I go over everything for you in the video above!
Add length to the bottom with more rows using the granny stitch!
This little jack is perfect for Summer nights, cool Fall days! I made a kids size BUT the nice about the granny squares is that you can keep going using the same pattern. Make this jacket as big as you’d like!
