Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, intarsia, short rows

Pattern Description:

This colorful child's jacket is easy to knit and fun to wear!

The kimono styling means there is no neck shaping to deal with and the ties eliminate the usual struggle with buttonholes and zippers!

I used Bartlettyarns Fisherman Bulky, a super bulky wool yarn, for warmth and quick knitting.

This yarn is also reasonably priced and won't break your budget, in order to knit the jackets! It is knit to a tighter gauge than super bulky is usually knit, but this makes a fabric that will wear longer and be warmer.

As this is a youthful design, it is sized for younger children: 4 / 6 / 8.

Gauge:

12 sts and 17 rows = 4" (10 cm) in st st using size 10 ndls, or size to give gauge. To save time, take time to check gauge.
