My original plan was to do the lapels in the Rya stitch. I did a few rows and did not like it as I thought it was too busy for the rest of the jacket. So I ripped that out and switched to Brick stitch. It gives the lapel a different texture from the rest of the jacket and does not overwhelm it. It is all worked in the same colors of Flair and Petite Frosty Rays as the hat.
