Jacket knitting pattern



Embrace the summer season with this versatile knit. It's the perfect completion of any outfit whether layered with a blouse in cooler weather or used to give a lift to a casual day dress on a summer's evening. Made in crisp cotton aran, it knits up quickly and is a great make for practising working with cables.
