Noro Open Front Jacket PDF
Knit on the bias in allover zigzagging stripes, the Open-Front Jacket from Noro is a study in subtle contrasts. The pattern alternates Noro Silk Garden with solid Silk Garden Sock Solo worked at a looser than usual gauge, so the solid stripes are slightly sheer. While the body is worked in smooth stockinette, the collar incorporates welting into the same stripe sequence. Cardigan is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up and seamed.
