Venecia es una chaqueta tejida de arriba abajo de una sola pieza en plano con cuello redondo (caja) y manga raglán. Lleva una serie de vueltas cortas para elevar el cuello por la parte de atrás y se prolongan por el detantero para que el cuello quede redondo y no recto como sucede en la mayoría de los diseños con este tipo de manga. A la altura de la sisa se separan cuerpo y mangas y se sigue tejiendo el cuerpo hacia abajo. Unos centímetros antes del largo deseado, se empieza a tejer una textura que combina trenzas y calados que recuerda a los arcos de la catedral de San Marcos en Venecia, de ahí su nombre. Después se tejen las mangas que se han dejado en espera con punto revés.
Esta chaqueta tiene una holgura positiva recomendada de entre 5 y 10 cm, es decir, debes elegir una talla cuyo contorno de pecho de la prenda terminada sea entre 5 y 10 cm mayor que tu contorno de pecho, aunque en algunas tallas puede que la holgura sea mayor o menor.

La modelo de la portada viste una talla 3 con una holgura positiva de 5 cm.
Hilo

Para tejer esta chaqueta he utilizado la calidad Silky de Rosas Crafts (50% lana merino superwash, 25% seda, 25% poliamida) en el color 120.

Venecia is a seamless jacket worked flat top-down with a round neck (crew) and raglan sleeves. A series of short rows are worked to raise the neck at the back, and these come around to the front to keep the neck rounded rather than looking straight as happens in the majority of designs with this type of sleeves. Body and sleeves are separated at the underarm and then the body is worked down to the hem. A few centimetres before the desired length, we begin to work a texture that combines cables and lace, which is reminiscent of the arches of the cathedral of San Marcos in Venice, from which this jacket takes its name. Then the sleeves that were left on hold are purled.
Ease

This jacket is designed to be worn with a recommended positive ease of between 5 and 10cm, which means you should choose a size for which the chest circumference of the finished item is between approximately 5 and 10cm larger than the wearer’s chest circumference. Bear in mind that the number of stitches at the chest needs to work with the chart, for this reason the sizes are not exact.

The sample shown is a size 3 with positive ease of 5cm.

Yarn

For this jacket I used Silky, by Rosas Crafts (50% merino superwash wool, 25% silk, 25% polyamide) in the colour 120. If you would like to make your jacket with the same yarn, you can buy the kit, available in five colours, using this link:
