Herringbone stitches put a beautiful spin on a traditional silhouette.

This jacket is worked in pieces from the bottom up, beginning with a hem facing, then sewn together after blocking. The Front armholes are worked to a longer depth than the Back to create an English tailored shoulder.

Take gauge for Zigzag pattern before and after washing and blocking your swatch to properly check length of work in progress. Row counts within Zigzag pattern are specified throughout, but will not produce the desired length if your row gauge does not match the pattern gauge. It is essential to know both your pre-blocking and post-blocking row gauge. Work a large swatch to ensure accurate gauge. You may need to adjust the number of rows that you work to achieve the post-blocking lengths given in the pattern.

#sizeinclusive to a 66.5” / 169 cm finished chest measurement.
