There are 2 options to making this jacket:

OPTION 1: 1 Merino Cloud Gradients Pack (shown in Purple colors A, B, C, D) and 3 (3, 4, 4, 5) skeins of Big Merino Cloud in MC (shown in 264)

OPTION 2: 3 colors of Big Merino Cloud, 1 skein each (A, B, C) (shown in A: Light purple 2238, B: CC5 Multi, C: Deep purple 2235)
and 3 (3, 4, 4, 5) of Big Merino Cloud in Main color (shown in Main Color:MC): blue 326)

If you use Option 2, you will work solid colors with Artyarns Cosmic Colors (in this case Color CC5) to create a fair isle look without any of the work.

This is a very very easy knit. Once you get past the provisional cast on at the very beginning (to establish the collar), the entire piece is knitted in stockinette and rib. The flare at the bottom is designed to give a flowing movement to the piece and make sure it accommodates all body types.
