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.
