Pattern Description:

"Little Willow is a unisex jacket worked in Lotus Yarns Tibetan Cloud, a light worsted weight yarn. It is worked seamlessly and flat, from the bottom up with the sleeves worked separately and joined to be worked with the body, right up to the top of the hood.

"The jacket features a simple, yet interesting, zigzag moss stitch pattern with wide garter stitch hem, cuffs, front double breasted overlap, and hood bands. There is 2-4" (5-10cm) of positive ease for a generous and roomy fit.
