“Indispensable is the only way to describe this elegantly designed jacket,” avers Love. “Perfect for the new knitter, it is simple to make, and impossible to live without, once you have it in your wardrobe. Using a figure-flattering horizontal rib, it can be worked in the length of your choice. Soft DK-weight yarn works up quickly and drapes beautifully. The one button closure gives it definition, or, left open, it’s the perfect jacket to wear on the fly.” Knitted in one piece from the lower back hem and over the shoulder to the front hem, you can make it waist, hip, or knee length. After seaming the sides, the collar is the only real finishing, picked up and knitted out. (from Patternfish description)
