Just in time for fall, here’s a multi-purpose jacket that is structured enough to be a blazer alternative and casual enough for weekend wear. It knits up easily in garter stitch and is completely seamless. There is about 2” of positive ease for wearing over a blouse or shirt. Style options include 3/4 or long sleeves, attached I-cord trim, and figure-8 button closure.
Any heavy worsted or Aran-weight yarn that gives gauge will work, but I recommend using something with a slightly “crunchy” texture such as a wool-silk blend.
