Collett jacket is a jacket with delicate shoulder details and a slightly higher neckline. The jacket is worked back and forth from the top down. To bring out the nice shoulder details, you first work increases for the body, thereafter for body and sleeves at the same time. You finish the jacket with short rows at the back before the ribbing starts, so that it is longer at the back side. The front bands are worked right from the beginning, only to place them on hold on cable needles and finish them at the end. Then they are attached to the front edges. The armhole openings are slightly deeper and the body has a wide fit. The sleeves have a tight fit for a feminine look. As the jacket is worked top down, the length can easily be adjusted.

The pictured model is worked in Rauma Finull 4014 + double thread Plum 009.
Choose a size that is approx. 15-20 cm wider (positive ease) than your chest circumference. The chest circumference is measured across the chest, right below the armhole opening.
