Jente Jakke

The last day of April was sunny but a bit cold; perfect for the “premier” of the jacket I finished last night! It is in a warm but light yarn (cashmere and alpaca blend), deep blue and with semi-long sleeves. In a hurry I have used garter stitch for the lower part, but the upper part is in a structure pattern that almost looks like small flowers. Jente Jakke         This pattern combined with decreasing just a few stitches makes the chest part tighter. I inserted the sleeves by raglan but only decreasing on the sleeve side which I think creates a nice back.
