Boys jacket with pockets and optional hood P044
This jacket was designed especially for Oliver. This little man (6 years old) really knows what he wants. He just loves to wear hand-knitted soft and cosy garments, and particularly wanted a jacket with pockets (to hold any little treasures he finds), a hood (to keep his ears warm) and lastly, and most importantly, a zipper (much easier than buttons to close). He now is one very happy little boy!
The sample was knit in Patons Classic Totem (now discontinued). A substitute yarn is shown below and the quantities include sufficient for the hood which takes 2 balls of yarn.
The sleeve instructions were incorrect and it took me a while to work out the correct instructions by looking at the picture. Otherwise it is still early in my progress to see if there are any other confusing instructions. I like the pattern!
