Inspired by the silhouette of the 1930s- and 1940s, and with its decorative berry pattern, the Forest Berry Jacket is the perfect knit for all of the Northern seasons. It is knit down and up, with raglan and slight puff sleeves.
While the sleeves are knit on circular needles, the bodice is knit back and forth.

The recommended wool is the gorgeous Pickles Merino Tweed, which gives the jacket the perfect old fashioned feel, whilst remaining soft and comfy. The finished jacket needs to be washed to make the wool fills out, rendering it plush and rustic at the same time.

If using the recommended yarn the jacket will stretch out, so don’t worry if it turns out a bit tight at first!

Sizing info - as it’s a formfitting jacket that will not have the same measurements taken flat as when worn, guideline measurements are not included. However, if you’re sure of your size go for what you normally wear. If you’re unsure I would recommend going up a size.
As Pickles Merino Tweed is not very stretchy, the jacket has been designed with that in mind to still make it formfitting. If you go for another, more elastic yarn, you might need to go up a size.
