For this fitted jacket, Deborah Newton has combined several novelty yarns in a variety of pinks to get the look of a plush tweed fabric. After swatching various yarns and pattern stitches, she found just the right play of textures nubby against smooth, matte against shiny, and metallic against frosty. The final touch? Deborah added vintage buttons she had been saving for something special.
