This classic short jacket knit in DK-weight yarn at a firm gauge incorporates a twisted stitch pattern worked on both right and wrong sides, with stitches picked up to knit up the body and sleeves. Close with clasps or a zipper.

Please note: the instructions for the cables worked on the wrong side of the work are slightly off--specifically, one of them says to hold a stitch in front when it should be held in back.

Here’s the simple way to think about it: When working the cables on the wrong side, all stitches to be purled through the back loop should be held to the back of the work. All stitches to be knit should be held to the front of the loop. Simple as that.
