Knitted in a tweedy blend of merino, silk, and cashmere, this casual jacket is exceptionally soft, luxurious, and lofty. It is worked from the lower edge to the neck, with hourglass waist shaping along the way. The main trinity stitch pattern has a four-stitch repeat that consists of one-into-three increases paired with three-into-one decreases. While careful attention is necessary to keep the stitch counts correct during shaping, the stitch pattern is quite easy to master.
