Inspired by the styles and patterns of the 1960s, Urban Mandarin is updated for today with a modern sensibility and body-conscious shaping. Wear it as a dressy jacket, or pair it with jeans and boots for a more casual look. Whatever your pleasure, Urban Mandarin offers a stylish and timeless alternative to the average sweater.

Urban Mandarin is knit in the round, with a left or right side steek that follows the raglan shaping. The two-color pattern is easy to memorize and quick to knit; the finished fabric is warm and dense, but soft enough to wear next to the skin.

Skills needed: basic stranded knitting, steeks
