Pattern description from Interweave Knits: “Not all knits are stretchy. All-over slip-stitch patterns add stability to knitted fabric and give it a woven look and feel. Teva Durham has taken advantage of a ‘woven’ knit-stitch pattern to make a plaid jacket that’s as comfortable to wear as any sweater, but will hold its structure long after you’ve put it on. A large collar, roll-back cuffs, and simple chopstick closure (you can substitute a kilt pin) give the jacket urban sophistication and the warm, spicy colors will brighten any day.”

Finished Size: 36 (38.5, 41.5, 46.5, 52)” (91.5 98, 105.5, 118, 132 cm) bust/chest circumference, closed.
