Designer Notes:

  • Jacket is worked in five pieces: Back, Left Front, Right Front, and two Sleeves. Pieces are worked in different directions.
  • The Back and Left Front are worked from side to side. The Right Front is worked from lower front point upwards. Sleeves are worked from the cuff upwards.
  • Edgings along the center left and right side and around bottom of the jacket are kept simple so they do not interfere with the esthetics of the cable pattern, the large collar and the asymmetry.
