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.
