Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “This designer is renowned in the handknitting world for her attention to the finest of design details. Here she takes a simple, lightly textured jacket and makes it irresistible by giving it a fitted shape, a zipper-front, and a fold-over collar. Each piece is worked separately from the lower edge upward in a modified moss-stitch pattern. The front edges are trimmed with a couple of rows of reverse stockinette stitch. A few rows of knit 1, purl 1 ribbing pull in the back of the collar for a tailored fit.”
