A classic, bomber-styled jacket, lightly felting and double-thick, in a hearty plaid colorwork pattern.

Inspired by my paternal grandfather. Check out the pattern page for more information on the man and the jacket. Available for $6.50 or three pages of your family story.

Errata:

  • CO instructions for right front should read: With MC, CO 14 sts. Passing MC over CC2 (twisting the two yarns to prevent a hole), CO 48(51, 55, 58, 62, 65, 69, 73) more sts with CC2. 62(65, 69, 72, 76, 79, 83, 87) total sts. This makes the left and right fronts identical mirror-images.
  • Decreases in the shaping instructions for the right front neck/shoulder should be reversed: work k2togs as p2togs, and vice versa.
