Grüner jacket is a soft and warm cardigan, worked with double thread on thick needles. It has a short and wide fit, deep pockets, a folded hem at the neckline, V-neck and moreover, a zipper instead of buttons. It is worked bottom up; the sleeves are picked up around the armhole openings and worked to desired length.
The jacket is designed to fit the length of the zipper +/- a few centimetres. It is not recommended to buy a zipper that differs greatly from the length given above. Depending on the zipper, the jacket can be knitted a little longer or shorter before the V-neck slant begins. You can find a zipper with a ring here.
The pictured jacket is worked in Sandnes Børstet alpakka, col. 9575 and Sandnes Peer Gynt, col. 9572.
The jacket is designed to be worn with approx. 25-30 cm positive ease. The jacket has a wide cut and should fit loosely to the body, perfect for the wide and short fit.
Grüner jacket was one of the first patterns by Witre Design. The sizes are calculated slightly different compared to the newer patterns. Please take your own measurements first, before you start knitting to determine your correct size for the perfect fit.
