Wool Local ‘Fettle’ Pattern (Erika Knight)


A basic and easy edge to edge jacket knitted in stocking/stockinette stitch and K2,P2 rib with two ends of  Wool Local held together as one to create fuller fabric. The back is worked from the bottom up with a deep K2,P2 rib and decorative rib stitch at the centre and armhole edges. The fronts have the same deep welt which conceals pockets and wide K2,P2 front bands. There is short row shaping at the shoulders, which are finished with a three needle cast/bind off. The boxy sleeves are picked up and knitted towards the wide K2,P2 cuff.
