Jailbird is a lightweight zippered a-line jacket with roomy pockets, shaped hood, ridge details, and rolled edges. The center front is steeked to make room for a zipper, allowing you to knit stockinette in the round for everything but the hood. (Alternate instructions are given for knitting flat, with no steek.) Never done a steek before? Afraid of sewing? Especially zippers? No worries. Jailbird includes full directions, schematics, and photo tutorials for all this scary stuff you haven't tried because you were afraid you'd mess it up. Skills you will need: knitting in the round, basic increases and decreases, mattress stitch, and grafting stitches. All other unfamiliar techniques will be covered. GAUGE 28 stitches and 44 rows = 4 inches in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL) To fit bust : 32 (34,37 41,45,50) inches (shown in size 34")

I've been driven to create for as long as I can remember. Although I'm concentrating on knitting right now, I also love to sew, weave, and crochet.
