Edgewick is a medium weight, zippered jacket knit back and forth on a long circular needle from the bottom up. Stitches are picked up around the arm and the sleeves are knit down to the optional fold-back cuff with short rows to shape the sleeve cap. I-cord is applied down the front before the zipper is sewn in and stitches are picked up around the neck to knit the collar. Both cuff options pictured are available in the pattern.
