Take a closer look!
A cropped jacket in a simple but effective all-over texture pattern, a clever knit-and-purl interpretation of a plaid. Deep garter edgings and a high collar lend a casual flair to this versatile piece. Wear it like a bomber jacket, with jeans and a tshirt for weekend flair; for office-wear or dinner dates, style it like a boxy ‘Chanel’- type jacket with a skirt, or over a dress.
As shown, it’s buttonless; the wide garter edgings are a super way to show off a favorite shawl pin, or other type of closure pin. You can add a button (or several) if you’d prefer.
The sample is worked in the Short Length, with full-length sleeves; the model is wearing it with a close fit, so that the back and sleeves are kept close to the body and the front doesn't sag when worn open.

Part of the Lockdown Collection, the yarn was deep in Kate's stash. It was leftovers from a Holiday installation at a high-end department store in Toronto - hence the rather delicious shade of red. It's not a yarn that's commercially available, sadly, but it's very similar in texture and gauge to Berroco Vintage Chunky. Malabrigo Chunky and Knit Picks’ Wool of the Andes would also be good substitutes. This jacket looks best in a thicker yarn - think worsted or heavier.
