Recipe for a Rustic Jacket

This pattern was last revised in 2015 and is not really representative of my current pattern writing style. In case of any questions please come to my group.


Knit this jacket in your individual size and with your favourite yarn. No specific tension/gauge required. Start right away and figure it out as you go. Have fun!

This is not a standard pattern with minute instructions for specific sizes. It is a 13 page tutorial or construction recipe with detailed information on how to adapt this jacket to your measurements and preferred yarn.
It includes instructions for a well-fitted hood that avoids some of the shortcomings of average hoods.

Rustic wool yarns of medium to bulkier weight (14 to 22 sts per 10 cm/ 4’’) are recommended for the result to look similar to the original, which was knitted in Studio Donegal Aran Tweed.

The original design of this jacket was inspired by a “Robin Hood” themed KAL in the “Folklore and Fairy Tales” group. It is dedicated to the Horned God of the Forest, aka Herne, for whom my original project is named.

In keeping with the spirit of the design, if you like the pattern please consider making a small donation to a local organisation that cares for forests, woodland or similar natural areas.
