This modular jacket is inspired by the Speckle & Pop Shawl. Short rows and chevrons form a curved collar using speckled yarn and color pops. The back features striped ribbing followed by honeycomb cables for the sides and garter stitch sleeves. A final brioche border completes the drapey silhouette. Wear the jacket with the garter stitch chevrons draped over your shoulders or flip it upside down to feature the brioche border as a collar.

Sizes: Small (Large)
You can achieve a smaller or larger size by altering your gauge/yarn weight.
Samples shown in fingering weight for a small size and DK weight for a large size.

Finished Measurements: 16 (21)” / 41 (53)cm back width. 8.5 (10.5)” / 22 (27)cm sleeve circumference. 25 (33)” / 64 (84)cm long from edge of chevron collar down the back to the bottom of the brioche border.

Small fingering weight size recommended for a 32-40” / 81-102cm chest circumference with a recommended gauge of 22 sts = 4” / 10cm.
Large DK weight size recommended for a 41-54” / 104-137cm chest circumference.

If you would like a large size using fingering weight yarn, I recommend aiming for a gauge closer to 20 sts = 4” / 10cm.
