Moto Jacket has ultimate versatility. It can be worn three different ways: swingy and open, partially buttoned with a wide collar, or buttoned up completely with a sculptural collar.
The original version of this pattern was published as an individual pattern and is still available for purchase and download here.
A revised version of this pattern is available in the book Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures!
The pictured sweater from this book is knitted seamless from the top down. If you prefer seamed knits, a second set of instructions is included to knit the cardigan in pieces.This will yield the same result. For more on why you might choose one construction method over the other, see page 40 of Home & Away!
In both versions, the collar, button band and buttonhole band are picked up and knitted last.
If you are in-between sizes, I suggest sizing up for this design. When choosing your size it is always a good idea to check your actual body measurements against all the measurements given in the pattern schematic.
