Contents: Introduction I: Simplicity- Simple Shapes and simple stitches are well suited to everyday jackets. The jackets in this section showcase special yarns beautifully with their straightforward knitting and interesting construction detail. Box Top- A boxy, easy fitting jacket in highly textured wool Tyrolean Jacket- Based on a traditional climber's jacket, this garment gets its name from the region of the Austrian Alps known as "Tyrol" Three Sisters- Named for the three basic stitch "sisters" used in the design, this jacket combines stockinette stitching, a cable panel, and garter stitch Seedling- This close-fitting cropped jacket is found in various cultures, worn when an extra touch of warmth or style is needed for the upper body Rachel's Jacket- Rachel Brown, master weaver and dyer in Taos, New Mexico, inspired this simple, textured jacket knit in hand-dyed yarn Cusco- Like traditional Andean garments made with alpaca yarn, this bolero-style jacket is soft, lightweight, and warm The Wrapper- The two-by-two ribbing of this jacket in brown tweed yarn is a fall classic II: Contrast- Light and dark, warm and cool, strong or subtle, the play of contrast defines pattern. In knitting, color patterns are often practical as well as beautiful, adding an extra layer of fiber for warmth and comfort. Northwest Celtic- In tribute to the blending of Salish and Scottish settlers in Vancouver, this jacket incorporates Celtic designs into the Salish-style sweater Dakota on the Side- The textures and colors of this jackets are achieved by using slip stitches, a simple two-color knitting technique that requires only one color per row Baltic Bodice- This close-fitting vest has knitted sleeves often found in the folk costumes of Scandinavia and Baltic countries Wabi Sabi- Inspired by the Japanese concept of beauty in simplicity, Wabi Sabi, this jacket is understated elegance Bergen- The muted color palette of the Bergan cardigan is a variation of a traditional Norwegian "Fana" cardigan, named for a popular borough in the city of Bergen III: Texture- The widely varied textures that can be created with knitting make it one of the most versatile of textiles. Here you will find jackets created with cables, knit-purl patterns, slip stitches, and even knitted lace. From the most traditional Aran cardigan to the Japanese-style hanten, texture gives knitting its "feel." Bloomsbury Jacket- Named for the Bloomsbury group of writers in London, this jacket is a tribute to their talent Puzzle Me This- The body of this cardigan is a combination garter and slip-stitch pattern that is complemented with one cable panel on the sleeve, saddle shoulder, and front band Edwardian Day Coat- Inspired by Edwardian influences when the Victorian era gave way, this loose-fitting knitted jacket echos the styles popular when clothing became comfortable Edo- The style of the knitted lace Edo is based on the traditionally simple Japanese hanten jacket Little Edo- A shortened version of the Edo, this simple pattern is more fitted, knit with fewer rows and smaller needles Ivory Leaves- The cropped structure of Ivory Leaves lends the air of a knitted lace shawl to a simple jacket Scholar's Jacket- Alternating columns of stockinette stitch and cables give this jacket a classic style reminiscent of the grand stone facade of a venerable library of museum Inish- Using only two cable patterns combined in a simple sequence, this jacket is inspired by Aran sweaters IV: Materials & Techniques
