Zebra jacket

Added Jan 3, 2014

Nedre Vats, Norway






This is a Fun and easy project. I had this nice knitted animal print fabric in my stash, and I think it was perfect to make this Cocoon jacket with pockets in the side seams. It’s a bit big, but that is how it supposed to be – it’s very cozy to wear on a cold evening :)

Material Notes

Wool blends.




Winter, Fall
Casual, Bohemian

    It should be so nice to put on this jacket :) Then go sit with a cup of hot drink in your favourite cafe!

    It does look cosy and very smart on you Ellen. This pattern would make a good dressing gown for over PJs as well. You have me thinking!!!

    The choice of fabric is really great for such a project: it is well-draped and your Cocoon doesn’t look too loose despite the pattern. You look very stylish in it.

    Oh ellen this is fabulous. I do love your fabric choice. Did you line it?? , i think this looks so gorgeous on you. I have looked at this pattern but at the.moment i have ’nt got round to it lol. I love items like this. This will look as good with jeans/ trousers as skirtts and dresses. Brillant work xx

      Thank you sweet Mary! I didn’t line it because I think it’s more comfy without lining. If you like comfy clothing, I’m sure you will love this jacket :)
