Brigitta is a super-bulky, cropped and flared jacket that knits up in a weekend. Worked bottom-up you knit the body and each sleeve up to the underarm BO, then join and knit the yoke seamlessly up to the English Tailored shoulders. This method angles the shoulder seam to the back so you don’t get a bulky seam on top of your shoulder. You also use a Provisional CO above the cuff so you can go back and knit the cuff down guaranteeing a perfect sleeve length.
