Knit Jacket is Done!


 I just finished my Weekend Knit Jacket. I think I finished it just in time! It's perfect for this fall weather. The body of the jacket was knit sideways. I've never knit a sweater/jacket sideways and I was a little worried about the final product. However, as you can see, it came out great!


Here is the back view. I think the yarn really complemented this pattern. The variations in color add so much. I've only worn it around the house but it's very comfortable and quite warm!


Here's a closeup of the stitch that makes up most of the body. I think it's a variation of the moss stitch. It was relatively easy. I memorized it which made knitting it even faster. I plan on using this nice jacket until the winter weather really settles in. (Hope that won't be for a little while!)


Happy Halloween! Enjoy and don't eat too much chocolate! (Like me!!)
