Winter Star Jacket
Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2005: “This breezy jacket takes its name from the funky, off-kilter stars that Di Gilpin incorporates into the design at the bottom and front edges, cuffs and in grand scale across the back. A sturdy hem is worked in stockinette, then folded back and sewn in place to make a facing. Stitches picked up along the front opening and around the neck form a foldover facing as well. The cuffs are left unfinished and allowed to relax into a slight roll. Designed for layering and a bit of swing as the wearer moves about, the jacket hangs open without closure of any kind.”
