This jacket is perfect for chilly summer nights, and easy to make. Elsa is simple top down raglan worked in half double crochet. Every other row is worked through the back loops to create a striped texture, and the cuffs and bands are added at the end in single crochet. A dense gauge gives the jacket structure, and buttons and a zipper are added to create a polished look. The sweater is to be worn with 0-2 in of positive ease.
20 sts x 13 rows = 4in x 4in
Iíve been knitting since 2004 and crocheting since 2006. I knit my first sweater in 2007 and I started designing in 2009. I design knits with a retro vibe using modern techniques. The patterns are designed with minimal seaming and, whenever possible, none at all. I love bright colors, but Iím terrible with multicolored yarn so I mostly work with solids.
