Perusing on pinterest I saw some pretty cool jean jackets out there with cool patterned fabric attached to one of the back panels. So... you can attach some cool fabric... or you can attach some cool crochet. Here's how!
You will need:
- A Jean Jacket, preferably with a a rectangular panel on the back
-2 colors worsted weight yarn (I like black and white because you can still wear it with just about everything!)
-Needle and thread
A helpful tutorial for this DIY is Color Changing... check it!
To make this pattern, you need to make the panel 15 + a multiple of 10 (like 25, 35, 45, etc.)
I'm chaining 36. So after making a sc in second ch from hook, I will have 35 stitches across total.
I started in white, making my center most 5 stitches in black. (So, 15 white, 5 black, 15 white.)
Make 4 rows like this.
Next set of rows, again start in white, center most 15 stitches in black. (So 10 white, 15 black, 10 white.) Make 4 rows like this.
Next set of rows, again start in white. Make 5 white, 10 black, 5 white, 10 black. Make 4 rows like this.
Next set of rows, this time start in black. Make 10 black, 15 white, 10 black. Make 4 rows like this.
Next set of rows, start in black. Make 5 black, 10 white, 5 black, 10 white, 5 black. Make 4 rows like this.
Continue in this fashion, stair stepping up every 4 rows.
Once you reach the center of the panel you are making, start stair stepping back so the top half is a mirror image of the bottom half.
Finish by sewing the crochet panel onto the back of your jacket with a needle and thread.
