Speckle & Pop Jacket

Please select all options.

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern

    This modular jacket is inspired by the Speckle & Pop Shawl. Short rows and chevrons form a curved collar using speckled yarn and color pops. The back features striped ribbing followed by honeycomb cables for the sides and garter stitch sleeves. A final brioche border completes the drapey silhouette.

    Wear the jacket with the garter stitch chevrons draped over your shoulders or flip it upside down to feature the brioche border as a collar.

    8.5 (10.5)” / 22 (27)cm sleeve circumference.
    25 (33)” / 64 (84)cm long from edge of chevron collar down the back to the bottom of the brioche border.

    Small fingering weight size recommended for a 32-40” / 81-102cm chest circumference with a recommended gauge of 22 sts = 4” / 10cm.
