Jong is a one size fits all pattern….minimal detail, maximum style. This bulky oversized garter stitch jacket is knitted top-down with faux seams. It’s a great cover-up and warm enough to wear as an outer jacket on most occasions. Its simple style means that it looks good dressed up or down and has the added advantage of being a really quick and easy knit.
The jacket is three quarter length but could easily be lengthened or shortened according to personal taste. The sleeves are turned back just above the wrist for a slightly cropped look.
This pattern is as yet untested although I’ve knitted it 3 times in total. On each occasion I pretty much kept to the same instructions as my original jacket, which was designed as I knitted, but my notes have been tweaked along the way. It is only when I came to actually writing the pattern that I realised just how sparse my original notes were. Parts seemed to be missing and some were nothing more than stitch counts and scribbles which were almost impossible to decipher! On the positive side I’ve now completed the pattern notes in full and I am happy to answer any queries.
If any errors or inconsistencies are found then please let me know and I’ll amend asap.
