Knit seamlessly from the neck down, beginning with a Provisional cast on, this classic little jacket features unique asymmetrical diamond cabling on the fronts, sleeves and back, as well as running up and over the hood. The hood is knit on from the neck up, seamlessly. Cuffs, hem, front opening and hood bands are all done in garter stitch with a contrasting I-cord edge applied last. A zipper helps to keep the chill out or choose the optional buttons & loops.
2.5 - 4” (6.5 - 10cm) of positive ease make this the perfect indoor/outdoor jacket.
