Stockinette stitch jacket with one cable panel (knit from a chart) and garter stitch borders. These three basic stitch “sisters” give the jacket its name. Combination of techniques and ease of knitting make this garment a good choice for both new knitters with advancing skills and experienced knitters in search of a classic style.

Lower body is worked in one piece to the armholes; then the back and fronts are divided and worked separately to the shoulders. Stitches for sleeves are picked up around the armhole, and sleeves are worked circularly down to the wrist.
