This is a very exciting pattern for me. As it is my first garment, and I adore it. A customisable-length, super cosy jacket with colour blocking and short row shaping.
The pattern is worked with three colours, though more could be added – maybe a contrast trim? And worked from the top down. Sleeves are worked with short row caps for a neat fit. And barring a little seaming at the shoulders, the whole thing is knitted as one piece.
The gray / green combination above is worked in Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky in the Light and Dark Gray Heather, and Lime colour ways. The version shown below uses Knit Picks Brava Bulky in Seraphim, Mulberry and Peacock.
This pattern and the rest from the Holla Knits Winter 2015 collection can be found here.
