Having knitted one spring jacket for the twins I needed to knit one more. Also still I do have far too much Noro in my stash.
This jacket is mainly made with Noro Silk Garden. I used leftovers from another project at the end of the sleeves and the collar. The jacket is made in sections. I knitted the back cable a little more than halfway up. Picked up stitches at each side and knitted the two lower sections (with cables and garter stitches). Then I knitted the two front cable sections, picked up stitches at the top end of the lower sections and joined the work for a few rounds. Then I casted off rather many stitches to make an opening for the sleeves. I finished the back and front, joined at the top and made the top section. Thereafter I did pick up for each sleeve and knitted them from the shoulder and down.
The pattern used/made is inspired by Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Tomten.
In total 260 grams and appr. size 3-4 years.
