The Treefort Jacket is a fun and simple unisex cardigan that can be knit up in a hurry & is perfect for any season. This classic hoodie is worked seamlessly and flat from the neck down, in a random striping pattern. The sleeves are worked in the round & can be either short or long. The hood is worked from the neck up, with increases worked along the center back and then grafted at the top. Garter stitch cuffs & bands around the hood and down each front, finish the jacket off nicely, with buttons along the entire front edge. There is about 2-4” (5-10cm) of positive ease for a roomy, comfortable fit making this the perfect jacket to wear outdoors or in.
What a great little jacket to use up smaller amounts of yarn!
