This beautiful jacket was made by the blogger at Foray Into Victorian-Age Madness. She used a deep shade of green for the base color and mixed it up with some very nice colors in her granny squares. She first began by making the huge square on the back.
She then got to work crocheting enough smaller granny squares to make the rest of the jacket. She admitted it was a lot of work tying all the ends in, but the end result was so worth it!
This beautiful version was made in a bright, eye-catching red. The color combination is amazing, but again you could use any color yarns you’d like, or even do it all in one shade or palette.
It is made exactly the same way as the previous one, but this blogger provided some very handy charts to go with it. You can get the details here
