From ‘Jean Frost Jackets’: Linen stitch makes a most interesting fabric with a woven look. In this jacket I used three soft colors of a lightweight yarn. Linen stitch makes a dense fabric, so the yarn should be lightweight. With the focus on the fabric, the detailing can be kept to a minimum. A simple collar frames the V-neck; there are no pockets and no buttons. If you wish to keep the jacket closed, a hidden button with a chain loop could be placed on the inside. This jacket is short, but that is a personal choice; make it longer if you wish.
