Delicate cables braided into loose diamonds appear to float lightly above furrows of hearty garter stitch. Wide garter bands, worked at a denser gauge, finish the edges and broaden into a petite shawl collar for a look that’s both tailored and rustic. The body is worked flat in a single piece to the underarms, then divided to knit the fronts and back. The sleeves are also knit flat and set in. Styled with minimal ease, Kierson makes a trim jacket for soft weather — try it in a neutral or pastel hue for spring wear or choose a saturated autumn color like Embers or the Cinnabar used for the sample. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, choose a size that gives you at least 4” of ease.
