Julep Jacket Knitting Pattern launches today!

It's that time again - the Holla Knits Spring issue!

This issue includes my new pattern - Julep Jacket

As temperatures start to warm up, I find myself shirking off my heavy coat as soon as possible. This wool jacket is perfect for that in between time when it’s too cold to go without a jacket but too warm for a winter coat. It’s checkered with tiny bows, with a relaxed blouse-y shape and elbow length sleeves. Perfect for a picnic or a baseball game on a Spring day!

Finished Size 
32 (36, 40, 44)” bust circumference.

Yarn: Knit Picks Swish DK, 100% Superwash Merino Wool; 123yds/50g: 8 (9, 10, 12) skeins in Amethyst Heather.
Yarn: Unplanned Peacock Superwash Merino DK, 100% Superwash Merino Wool; 230yds/100g: 4 (5, 5, 6) skeins in Grass.
Needles: Size 5 (3.75 mm): 30” circular (cir) & DPNs. Adjust needle sizes if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions: Stitch markers (M), tapestry needle, large snap, sewing thread to match.
22 sts and 30 rows = 4” (10 cm) in Bow Stitch on size 5 needles.

This jacket is worked from the bottom-up, starting with the bow stitch body. After knitting each sleeve separately, you join them to the body and work raglan decreases. After knitting the front bands, you return to the bottom of the piece to add a turned band, and then finish with the neat little collar. Each edge is finished like a pro!

It's $6 as an individual pattern, and available here on the Holla Knits site, and it's on Ravelry here. I hope you guys love it!
