How it works

  • This pattern was designed by a Craftsy independent design partner!
  • You'll purchase through PayPal and all profits go to the designer.
  • After purchase find your pattern in your pattern library.


With its soft, full collar and deep V-neck, this garment will be flattering on any figure type. The set-in sleeves with nicely finished cuffs look tidy. The simple design is finished with a tailored-looking I-cord edging (including the back neck) which is deceptively quick and simple to work. If you've been saving that "special" button for all these years, this is a perfect opportunity to show it off. The garment shown is made with single-ply, 100% wool; this jacket would look great in everything from silk to linen to light-weight mohair, making it a versatile choice for those with stashes - I know you're out there! One possible variation might be to use a different yarn for the Neckbands, something to contrast or complement in texture and/or color, the main garment yarn. Maybe a soft, light lace weight mohair, or angora, or alpaca. Or a solid color, where the main garment is multiple colors. There are lots of possibilities. This was a pleasure to knit, with just enough interesting things going on to motivate progress.

I've been knitting for (OMG!) over 50 years. But wait: I started when I was about 4 so that's not so bad! I love things that look hard to make but are actually really easy, and I very much enjoy the challenge of off-the-wall construction techniques. I had my own mail order knitting kit business for a while, and I was President and co-founder of the Knitting Guild of Canada. I am also a Master Knitter as accredited by TKGA and I was the creator and evaluator of the Canadian Master Knitter program run by TKGC. So, let's get knitting!
