"Hi everyone, and Happy New Year! knitting with cotton yarn can be a challenge since it lacks elasticity a little bit. When I ordered Paintbox yarn, I was eager to get my hand on this beautiful yarn pack I found online, a palette of four colors. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that the yarn I purchased was made from cotton, so It took me a while to figure out what it would be suitable for. I finally decided to turn this yarn into a spring jacket. First, I decided that this palette needed a primary color added to it for my new project, and black yarn seemed to be the right choice, from there I got to work on the design. As my followers know, I'm an old fan of mosaic patterns, so I chose the hashtag pattern for my jacket. I think it’s both beautiful and intricate looking. I am very satisfied with the final product, and I think it would be a wonderful piece to wear next spring. When writing the instructions, I've tried to make them as clear and simple as possible, so I hope you have fun making this jacket. I also made a matching slouchy from the remaining yarn, which I will post later. Another surprise accessory is still in the making, so stay tuned. Stay safe and healthy my fellow knitters and crocheters, and I hope you have a wonderful new year! "
