Open Front Jacket PDF
Knit on the bias in allover zigzagging stripes, the Open-Front Jacket is a study in subtle contrasts. The pattern alternates blue-hued Noro Silk Garden colorway #373 with solid royal Silk Garden Sock Solo #3; worked at a looser than usual gauge, the solid stripes are slightly sheer. While the body is worked in smooth stockinette, the collar incorporates welting into the same stripe sequence.
