This stylish fitted jacket, designed by Meg Crowther, comes in 3 adult sizes and is knitted in a basket weave pattern with a ribbed waist band to add waist shaping. The double breasted front and epaulettes give it a military look. If you don’t have the patience for the fitted version, simply omit the waist band and you will have a stylish loose jacket.

Using DK yarn held doubled means this coat will be ideal for those cold winter months and cool spring and autumn days. This garment could also be knitted using a single strand of chunky yarn.
