From the pattern:

Chest: 31 (35, 39, 43, 47, 51, 55, 59) inches
Length: 23 (24, 25, 25.5, 26, 26.5, 27, 27.5) inches

Note: This pattern was designed as a jacket to be worn over layers and fit with 3-4 inches of ease. The model shown has a 32 inch bust and is wearing a size S (finished bust measurement of 35 inches). To make a more fitted jacket, knit a size that’s closer to your actual bust measurement.

Good substitute yarns would be Manos del Uruguay worsted-weight wool or Malabrigo worsted merino.

Everybody who can knit knows how to knit garter stitch.

When conceiving this jacket, my aim was to pare down design elements to the most basic: the knit stitch, basic increases and decreases, and dropped stitches. The result is a punk aesthetic that remains adaptable to all manner of personal styles.
You will not purl a stitch when making this jacket. If you’ve never knit a sweater, you can knit this one and enjoy every minute.
