3 Button Jacket KAL

Share Button

Just a reminder that we are just getting started on our latest KAL on Ready, Set, Knit – our weekly podcast.  I was asked in the comments to show a better photograph of the jacket – here it is:

Project:  3 Button Jacket from Classic Elite’s Weekend Pattern Booklet 9102

Yarn:  Classic Elite Chesapeake – 50% organic cotton/50% merino wool

Amounts:  9(10, 11, 13, 14) depending on size 34½ (38, 42, 46½, 50½)”

Needles:  Recommend #7 or whatever size you need to attain a gauge of 21 sts and 30 rows over 4″.  Also one 24″ circular needle 2 sizes smaller than the body needle.

Other:  Size G crochet Hook, cotton waste yarn for stitch holders, 3 buttons, tapestry needle, locking ring markers.

The jacket does have a bit of an A-line flair to it.  The stitch itself is a 4 row repeat of knits and purls and not difficult at all.  Some of the construction portions of the jacket are challening but don’t feel intimidated.  Pixie & I discuss this on this week’s podcast that will be up on Saturday.  I’ve tried the jacket on and it’s really stunning.

If you are knitting along with us or planning to make the jacket at some point, please share your thoughts in the comments!

    This jacket looks gorgeous. I will try and get a look at the other patterns in the booklet to see what they are like, as it looks like this is not available as an individual download.
