The Slanted Rib Jacket hand and machine knitting patterns are now both available for sale.
This dress-up or dress-down au current jacket is bordered by a ribbed shawl collar that drapes diagonally with the attached ribbed bottom. It looks complicated, but all of the shaping is done in stockinette. The instructions include four women’s sizes: small (32-34 in/81-86 cm) medium (36-38 in/91.5-96.5 cm), large (40-42 in/101.5-106.5 cm) and extra-large (44-46 in/111.5=117 cm).
The hand knitting pattern calls for Panda Silk by Crystal Palace, a DK weight wool and bamboo blend that drapes elegantly and isn’t as heavy as an all wool sweater might be. Hand knitters who like to have mindless work around will delight in the parts of this sweater that require just the least amount of attention.
The standard bed knitting machine pattern includes detailed text instructions and a stitch and row chart displaying every decrease and decrease for each garment piece. The ribbed panels are quick and easy rectangles that even a novice on the ribber can manage.
Purchase a digital download of either pattern for $7.00.
