Moxie Jacket Knitting Pattern
Available in ENGLISH, GERMAN and DANISH Here
Moxie jacket is an advanced beginner knitting pattern. It is a raglan style, cropped cardigan sweater, constructed from the top-down. First, the collar is created by working flat (back and forth) in the twisted rib stitch along with the continuous i-cord edging, the yoke is then worked flat in stockinette stitch. Finally, the sleeves and the body are worked separately. Toggle buttons are added at the end. You will need to be familiar with the basic crochet chain stitch in order to make the toggle button attachments. Moxie jacket is made from super bulky weight yarn and therefore it is intended to be worn with little ease, 5 -10 cm of positive ease is built into the pattern. Video support links are included in the pattern. Written in American knitting terms.
