Pattern Description:

The Willoughby Jacket is the matching companion to the Willoughby Longies. Each pattern can be purchased separately and is an individual download file.

Willoughby Jacket is the perfect little retro jacket for every little one! It is designed with about 2-3" (5-7.5cm) of positive ease for a comfortable fit to be worn over other clothing.

The jacket is worked from the bottom up, seamlessly & flat. Sleeves are worked in the round and then joined to be worked seamlessly with the body. It features raglan shaping, a repeating circular cable pattern all over, garter stitch cuffs, hem & hood edging, a pointy hood with an optional pompom at the peak.

Willoughby is named for my great-grandfather. This jacket is a tribute to the timeless baby knits of his era, with a modern twist.

I was 4 when my grandmother taught me to knit. I have since enjoyed all sorts of needle work; crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint, quilting. However, my love is knitting and designing seamless and classic garments for children :)
