Description: A jacket and skirt suit in a textured yarn with a finer knit plain sweater to co-ordinate. The textured yarn is a light weight bouclé yarn, for which it may be hard to fine a direct replacement; there are quite a few DK bouclé types available and it may be best to check a tension square of your chosen yarn and adjust the size that you knit accordingly.
The pattern is in good condition.
