This little cropped jacket is designed to show off Be Sweet?s lovely African Bead Ball**, a boucle baby mohair with African beads hand tied throughout, spun with a thin metallic strand. We used a simple open weave stitch pattern working purl rows on right side to highlight the strands of beads. This little jacket is slightly flared, has elbow-length sleeves, a soft round collar, and is closed with a velvet ribbon. This versatile little beauty will dress up any outfit. Kit includes velvet ribbon.
**From South Africa, this yarn was hand-spun and dyed by women in under a job creation program to provide economic opportunities to women in a rural region of South Africa.
