Sea Princess jacket is part three of my "Back to the Sea" collection of all season garments.
The jacket is entirely seamless and is knit from top down. I have provided links to all the relevant tutorials and techniques, so if you are not familiar with any of them, here is your chance to try, and succeed.
The back length is determined by the cable set for each size, and is measured from the top of the collar to the end of the hemline.
You will have lots of options to choose from: Short or long sleeves; elaborate or simple cables; garter or seed stitch bands and hem; wide or narrow button bands. Choose your options then follow the instructions for your style.
This pattern has two different versions (both are included):
Pages 1-18: DK: 6m - 9 year old (17-26" chest)
Pages: 19-36: Worsted: 1-14 year old (20-30" chest)
Pages 37-56: Cable Charts (print only pages for your size)
The pattern itself has a variety of options as well as detailed cable charts for each size.

My name is Elena Nodel, and I am a mom to a very industrious, busy, ever curious and adventurous little girl. She is my ever present inspiration for all my creative ideas. As she grows, she becomes more and more involved in my creative work, and actually does have a say in a final look of any given project. I have a Girly Girl, thus most of my designs are very feminine. However, lately I have started working on more unisex projects.
I was born and raised in Russia, a place where knitting is a part of the lifestyle. I now live in British Columbia, Canada, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I am a trained microbiologist/immunologist , and have spent years doing scientific research. I am married to a like scientist, and his name is Peter. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive husband, and Maya is very lucky to have a father who constantly encourages her natural curiosity, and teaches her about the world around her - she has him wrapped very tightly around her little finger!
I love working with natural fibers such as cotton or wool, and always try to use them.One thing I don't like doing is seaming, therefore I knit in the round as much as possible. It is great for me and comfortable for kids. And as a result, I usually design my garments to be worked in the round from the top down.
