The Novus Jacket was inspired by the construction of the sweaters in the Novus Collection. I wanted a winter weight jacket that would keep me WARM and that I could wear open or closed! The jacket is worked from the sleeve towards the center in two halves and then joined together by back and sleeve panels. It is easy to adjust! Add length to the jacket when you cast on for the body and add width by working more rows at the collar.

SPECIAL: If you have previously purchased the Novus Collection you will automatically receive a discount of $2 at checkout, no need for a special code! This sweater is not part of that collection as the 3rd sweater in Novus is a lacey number that is going to be stunning (and better for spring/summer!)
