Two colors of yarn held together create the marled patterning in this open jacket. “I love how the marled effect varies slightly between the knit section and the purl section,” says Kristen. “This warm Shetland yarn gives stability to the jacket that allows it to hang straight and with a lovely structure, without being too thick or bulky. The straight and basic shape allows the garment to be worn with a few inches of positive ease.”
