Product description

This architectural wrap-front jacket will turn heads with its swingy flare. A bold zigzag cable on a ground of garter stitch blazes around the body of the coat, which is worked sideways in two directions from a provisional cast-on at the center back. Stitches are picked up for the upper back and united with the sleeves for a raglan yoke, then the blanket-style front portions continue horizontally. Decreases subtly shape the hem, and stitches are picked up all around the garment to work a mitered garter edge.

    CONSTRUCTION

    • The sleeves are made first. The left lower back panel is worked side-to-side, from a provisional cast on. The right lower back panel is begun from the provisional cast on and worked in the opposite direction. The stitches from the lower back panels are left live on waste yarn. The sleeve stitches are joined together with stitches picked up from one side edge of the joined lower back panels to form the yoke (composed of back and sleeves only). The yoke is then worked toward the neck edge, with raglan shaping. The fronts are then worked side-to-side, from the held stitches of the lower back panels and picked-up stitches from the raglan edges. Finally, a garter stitch border is worked around the entire garment edge from a combination of held and picked-up stitches.
