Notes: A cute must-have for every boy’s (and girl’s) wardrobe! It’s a classic style – typical college / baseball jacket. Color possibilities are endless. Classic in white / black with accent in blue or red or fancy in pastel colors – choose what you like.
It’s knitted from the bottom up, without side seams, separated front and back at the raglan part, buttonholes are worked as you go. Sleeves are worked separately in the round, all pieces are placed together on one circular needle and the collar is knitted. At the end you just have to sew the raglan seams – done!
Skills: medium level; knit in the round, top down, increases, decreases, working short rows ( I prefer German Short Rows, but you can use any shirt row method), kitchener stitch or 3needle bind of to close armpit seams.
