Kira K. Designs Fireside Jacket PDF
The Fireside Jacket by Kira K Designs is reminiscent of shawl-neck sweaters from the 1950s and 1960s. The cozy collar will keep the wearer warm, and the extra long sleeves can be unfolded to keep hands covered (and will also allow the sweater to fit for a few extra months). It is knit seamlessly from the hem to the neck, then the collar is picked up and shaped with short rows.
