Want to know what Jacqui has been working away on secretly over the past month? It's finished - the beautiful Opal Tunic/Dress from Louisa Harding's latest book Bijoux: Jacqui made this sensational seasonal dress in Merletto yarn, shade 14. It takes between 9 and 15 balls to make this garment, depending on size and the length you choose to go for (â‚¬50-â‚¬82 - not bad for a fun and challenging knit that looks a million dollars!). As you can see, it's worked in a feather-and-fan lace pattern, with a flattering neckline and the shimmer of the yarn - all tying together to make this a perfect evening-wear piece suitable for the upcoming good weather (fingers crossed). You can see more pictures on Ravelry - we look forward to seeing your finished Opal!
