Product description

James Dean goes to Amsterdam. This brioche masterpiece is part cardigan, part bomber jacket—a debonair outer layer for the transitional seasons. Large faux cable motifs swirl from hem to shoulders and deep pockets add vintage appeal. Modified drop shoulders ensure a neat fit despite the roomy styling, and extra-long sleeves are designed to be turned back at the cuffs. Knit in Shelter, the Shaker rib produces a cozy double-thick fabric, so be sure to allow at least 3″ of ease.

    CONSTRUCTION

    • The pieces are worked flat and sewn together. The pocket placements on the fronts are made by working a portion of the stitches in waste yarn. The waste yarn is later removed and the pocket linings are worked downwards from the upper released stitches; the pocket edgings are worked upwards from the lower released stitches. The neckband is worked from picked up stitches and held stitches from the garment neck edge. The button bands are picked up from the front edges of the garment and collar.

    • 39¾ (42¾, 47, 50, 54¾, 57¾)” circumference at chest
    • Sample shown is size 42¾” with + 3¾” ease on model
