PetiteKnit – Zipper jacket
This is a printed pattern in Swedish. The pattern is only sent if you buy at least 2 balls of yarn at the same time. We reserve the right to cancel orders that do not comply with this.
The Zipper Jacket is knitted from the top down. First the back is knitted and then the two front pieces. Before the body is completed, double-knit front edges are knitted on the yoke, and the stitches from here are then included in the body's stitches. The double-knitted front edges appear to be stockinette stitched on both the right and wrong side.
The jacket closes at the front with a zipper, and lining is knitted to the zipper before it is assembled.
The sleeves are knitted in the round from the picked-up mi sleeve opening. Finally, the inner pockets are knitted from picked up stitches on the front of the jacket.
Knit a test patch to find the stitch size that gives you the right stitch strength.
Zipper Jacket should have a range of motion ( positive ease) of approx. 35 cm in relation to your bust measurement. The fit is oversized. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL correspond to a bust measurement of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 ( 130-140) 140-150 cm. The measurements of the finished jacket are given on the front of the pattern. Measure yourself before you start knitting, to determine which size will fit you best. If you e.g. measures 88 cm around the bust (or the widest part of your body), you should knit a size S. A jacket in size S has an overall width of 123 cm and in the mentioned example will give a range of movement ( positive ease ) of 35 cm.
