The Alex jacket was originally designed and knitted for my son. I dislike seaming and decided to create a
totally seamless garment knit from top to bottom. This jacket features ribs down the side for extra growth
room, optional cables and an optional generously-sized hood or collar. I have been knitting this top-down seamless pattern for my son since he was a baby. Finally, this past few months, I have found the time to write it out and have it tested.

Instructions include options for a seamless hood construction, collar or i-cord edged neckline. There are also options for cables and a few different edging options. There are “serving suggestions” for colour changes, but you can knit it in a single colourway or go nuts with the colour changes.

The jacket is designed to be a slim fit. It is perfect for wearing over a tee-shirt without being too bulky or baggy. It comes in sizes 12mth (2yrs, 4yrs, 6yrs, 8 yrs) to fit chest sizes 45.5( 51, 58.5, 63.5, 68.5)cm or 18(20, 23, 25, 27)in.
Final garment circumference is approximately 50(55.5, 66.5, 72.5, 78.75)cm or 19.75(22.5, 26.25, 29.5,
31)in. You will need a total of about 250g(350g, 400g, 450g, 550g) of worsted weight (10ply)yarn for the hooded version. Less required for the other versions.

If you are knitting the hooded version, don’t forget to also download the shortrow tutorial provided.
