This simple, unisex jacket was inspired by the clean lines and color juxtapositions of the German artist Josef Albers. The proportions of the intarsia motif on the back are taken from Albers’ Portrait of a Square series of paintings.

The jacket is knit in one piece, from side to side. Don’t be afraid of a little intarsia… this motif is very easy and very small!
