Chanelette

Easy
By Stephanie Voyer

Chanelette is inspired from the classic woven wool jacket from the great French designer Coco Chanel. This little girl version can made both as indoor jacket or outdoor fall coat. It can also be lined to be warmer. With gold decorative buttons and hidden baby snaps it results being classic and chic knit. The woven effect pattern stitch with contrast edge makes all the Chanel special touch. Perfect for your little princess needs.
