Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, seaming, brioche knitting, cables

Pattern Description:

Brioche knitting creates wonderful textures and patterns that are reversible. However, sometimes the fabric it creates can be bulky and more challenging to shape. With Lakedale, I challenged myself to design a shaped, stream-lined garment featuring brioche techniques. The jacket fronts feature small two-color brioche cable columns
that lend a striking visual impact with slimming vertical lines. Since the patterning is completely reversible, the collar can be worn straight or folded.

The jacket body is worked bottom-up with a two-color brioche edging. Front plackets and set-in sleeves are worked separately, then seamed to the garment body. The sleeves are worked in the round until the sleeve cap shaping.

(Sample shown worked in Size 36.5"/ 93 cm using Manos del Uruguay Manos Silk Blend (70% merino, 30% silk; 150 yds/ 135 m; 1.75 oz/ 50 g); color: MC: bing cherry 300M, 7 skeins, CC: nickel 3031, 2 skeins)

Gauge:

24.5 sts and 29 rows = 4"/ 10cm in St st using larger needle
18 sts and 28 rows = 4"/ 10cm in Brioche Edging using smaller needle
27 sts and 33 rows = 4.75"/ 12cm in Front Placket Chart
NOTE: See "Brioche knitting" notes in the pattern. In brioche knitting, 2 brioche rows equals 1 full regular row worked or counted.
