It is fun to see how the overall stitch pattern in this maddy laine knitting pattern transforms three colors of yarn into the look and texture of woven tweed.
The easy part is that you carry only one color per row while working combinations of knit and slip stitches. The second bonus is that you will end up with an amazing woven texture in a weight that is perfect for a jacket-style garment.
Garter stitch trim adds a neat and classy finish to this cropped-length jacket, while set-in sleeves add a touch of tailoring.
The knitting pattern, written in both US and metric measurements, includes a schematic drawing.
