This one piece, double-fronted jacket is worked sideways from cuff to cuff in Stocking stitch and reverse Stocking stitch ridges. It closes with two buttons, at left and right of neck opening, and the vertical ribs expand to fit over shoulders and hips.
When unbuttoned, jacket fronts drape with a wide lower collar for a completely different look, see additional photos.
9 sts and 4 reverse Stocking st ridges (24 rows, see Rows 1-6 page 2) = 2" (5cm) with smaller needle.
I can't remember when I couldn't knit, crochet or sew. I am inspired by yarn I find, trends I see on the street, window shopping in Manhattan and suggestions from fellow knitters and crocheters. My goal is to create stylish patterns that are easy to wear, and to find the simplest way to construct them.
