A Tweed jacket inspired by Christopher Kane’s elegant tweed version. My version has sleeves in stranded colourwork in stockinette stitch as a contrast to the tweed pattern made with slipped stitches on the body and a fitted waist. The tweed jacket has been given a vintage look, by using the fine Hillesvåg Alv Kamgarn held double.
