Just Chill - c. 2013


JUST CHILL




This cool sweater jacket will be the perfect addition to your child’s back-to-school wardrobe. It is knit from the top-down and includes a contrasting color for the collar, hem and cuff ribbing. The yoke is created using increases to form a saddle shoulder from the top. The shoulder caps are shaped using short rows, giving it a tailored look. The button bands or zippered edges are picked up after the body of the jacket has been completed and are finished off with an i-cord bind off.
