Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Holiday Gifts 2009: “Bulky plied wool in solid colors give even simple ribbing puffy, corrugated texture. The Highlands Zip Jacket knits up quickly in a warm fabric with surprising lightness.”

Finished Size: 35½ (39, 42½, 47, 50½)” chest circumference, zipped. Sweater shown measures 39”.

Yarn: Naturally Alpine 14 Ply (100% wool, 240 yd 220 m/200 g): #3012 mustard (MC), 4 (4, 5, 5, 6) skeins; #3000 dark brown (CC), 1 (1, 1, 1, 2) skein(s). Yarn distributed by Fiber Trends.

Needles: Size 8 (5 mm): 24” circular (cir). Size 10 (6 mm): 3 straight needles. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: 24 (26, 26, 30, 30)” separating zipper to fit opening and to match CC yarn; tapestry needle; sewing needle and thread.

Gauge: 14 sts and 20 rows = 4” in St st on larger needles.

Notes:

  • Because separating zippers do not come in as many colors as yarn, it is wise to purchase the zipper before picking out the yarn.
  • When working corrugated ribbing, be careful to loosely strand the yarn not in use across the back. Always carry the same color in the dominant position.
