New Pattern–Weekend Jacket

I’ve just uploaded a new pattern! It’s the zip-front jacket that I finished over the summer. I named it Weekend Jacket because it’s as comfortable as a pair of sweatpants.

The pattern is for five sizes ranging from 36″ to 44 1/4″ bust circumference. It has saddle-shoulder shaping and is worked from the top down with no seams! The yarn is a springy DK-weight wool (you’ll need between 1,500 and 2.000 yards) from Briar Rose Fibers. Don’t let the zipper intimidate you — click on Top How-To Insert a Zipper” in the top right corner of my blog page.

You can get the pattern through my website (annbuddknits.com) or Ravelry.I wore this jacket for the first time at Rhinebeck, and was I glad to have it! The days were sunny and beautiful but the temperatures fell drastically when the sun went down.

Comment to this post and I’ll enter your name in a drawing for a complementary PDF of the pattern. I’ll draw a winner Wednesday, November 6.
