Beginner Friendly Top-Down Knitting Pattern The Harper Jacket
Available in English and German Here
Harper Jacket is a beginner friendly top-down knitting pattern. Super bulky wool yarn works best to create this bold and chunky knit. Worked in garter stitch back and forth on the yoke and body, and in the round on the sleeves, all the way
through. It is constructed in one piece starting at the neck line. First you will work the yoke then you will put the stitches of the sleeves on hold, while you work the rest of the body. Then you will work each sleeve separately in the round. A few rows for the collar are worked additionally in the end. Featured as a cropped sweater cardigan, but it can be easily made in any length. Intended to be worn with little ease. 5-10 cm of positive ease is built into the pattern. Read the pattern all the way through before you begin.
