Jong is a one size fits all pattern….minimal detail, maximum style. This bulky oversized garter stitch jacket is knitted top-down with faux seams. It’s a great cover-up and warm enough to wear as an outer jacket on most occasions. Its simple style means that it looks good dressed up or down and has the added advantage of being a really quick and easy knit.

The jacket is three quarter length but could easily be lengthened or shortened according to personal taste. The sleeves are turned back just above the wrist for a slightly cropped look.

Length of sleeve from underarm to cuff - 11” (28cm)
Length from centre back to centre bottom - 26” (65cm)
