Pattern notes
The jacket body is worked in rows in one piece from the bottom edge up to the underarm shaping. Sleeves are knitted separately and then joined to the body at the start of the armhole shaping and it is worked in one piece from this point. One repeat of the Pear and Trellis pattern continues up the centre fronts of the jacket to form the decorative border.
