Pattern Description:

As temperatures start to warm up, I find myself shirking off my heavy coat as soon as possible. This wool jacket is perfect for that in between time when it's too cold to go without a jacket but too warm for a winter coat. It's checkered with tiny bows, with a relaxed blouse-y shape and elbow length sleeves. Perfect for a picnic or a baseball game on a Spring day!

This jacket is worked from the bottom-up, starting with the bow stitch body. After knitting each sleeve separately, you join them to the body and work raglan decreases. After knitting the front bands, you return to the bottom of the piece to add a turned band, and then finish with the neat little collar. Each edge is finished like a pro!
