“We are not leaving this house till the Morningstar dawns, and we want a coffee-punch, oh, yes, we do!”
This cheerful quote derives from a well-known Fanø-song, and these lines are song diligently and ALWAYS when there is a feast on Fanø. I have designed a bridal jacket that resembles the one that was worn in Sønderho (Fanø) in the old days. An insert has been knitted and it is located on the front of the chest, so the jacket looks as though something is softly hidden underneath. In the old days, a beautiful piece of silk was used as an insert.

“Morning Star” Bridal Jacket – Cream/black/golden
The jacket is close fitting with a bodice. It is closed in the front with clasps. The middle piece on the chest is not closed. Here, a square piece is inserted. It is knitted separately and lightly attached inside the jacket.
The bodice, made in moss sts with bubbles, plus the following 3 pin tucks, is knit back and forth. Then, the work is gathered together and is knit in the round with the steek-stitches up until the armholes. Here, the work is divided again and then knit back and forth. Where only one number is apparent, it applies to all 3 sizes.
