Note: I need to shoot new pics & reformat my patterns formerly available through Sanguine Gryphon. I’ll announce on my blog, newsletter, & rav group when they’re ready!

Shown in ‘QED’, in Sceptical Chymist, and ‘Little Traveller’, in Southside of Chicago.

Jacks – as in Jack the Giantkiller, Jack and the Beanstalk – are full of pluck and aided by luck. Charles de Lint, an award-winning author known for his urban fantasy novels, featured a Jack in two of his earliest novels.

Jacky Rowan, a formerly conservative, shy woman recently dumped by her boyfriend, embraces the otherworld just a sidestep away from our own and her role as a Giant-slaying, Swan-prince rescuing protector of Toronto and its human and Fae inhabitants.

This sweater, combining feminine ruffles and beanstalk-invoking cables and lace, is perfect for any feisty heroine.

  • Worked bottom up in one piece
  • Sized for XS-3X
  • Scoop neck
  • Waist shaping/darts
  • Short sleeves
  • Ruffles in a contrasting color at hem & sleeves
  • Sleeve stitches picked up around armholes
  • Sleeve cap formed by short rows
  • Ribbing at sides for additional shaping

This sweater is sized with negative ease for a snugger fit. If you prefer a looser fit, work your sweater in the next size up.

Skills required: reading charts, cabling, picking up stitches, grafting/Kitchener stitch, knitting in the round, short rows.
