Summer Swing Jacket
Note--Errata: At the beginning of pattern, after you CO and knit 16”, and pattern tells you to CO 18 sts at beg of next 2 rows, this should be BOTH of your sleeves, not just the left. The actual pattern instructions were correct, just not my bit about a left sleeve. Corrected in new version.
I’ve always been inspired by all things Japanese—I find this aesthetic so simple and soothing and beautiful. I wanted, specifically, a short-sleeved linen summer top, a little something to throw over my tank top on a cool evening, something a little Japanese, a little sweet, and very minimal. So I wrote the simplest pattern I could come up with--no side shaping, all one piece, kimono sleeves, no edgings.
I wrote it originally for myself, so it’s only written in one size, but since there’s no stitch pattern or shaping, it shouldn’t be too hard to make your own adjustments if necessary.
