Baby jacket. I had a small ball of baby acryl and just got going, no pattern, just a small t-shirt to have some idea of size. I started with the Tunisian crochet top part, then crocheted the body top down. After that I had 7.4 grams (about 1/4 oz) left for the sleeves. I weighed the ball several times till I had used half of it, then did the second one.

I had done something right for at the end the sleeves were equal size and I had 6 inches of yarn left.

Wow, this is just a beautiful jacket. I love the pattern you've used. Wouldn't be able to do it unless I had a pattern in front of me, I'm always amazed at women/men can just make up something without a pattern to read. Great work. Love Chris

What a perfect jacket! Boy were you lucky on the amount of thread to use! I'd have run out. The little buttons are just right for the jacket too. Did you make button holes for it?

Yes, I did, skipped 2 single crochets and did two slip stitches instead. Buttons are from an old shirt.

Lovely, Martine. I've done sleeves like that as well - much easier now we have really accurate kitchen scales.

Yes, those scales certainly helped a lot.
