I wanted a structured, sturdy jacket worked in a tight gauge.
Knit sideways using a lot of shortrow shaping, I designed Northland Loop to make the best out of kettle dyed yarns.
The body part of the jacket is made in separately first. It is knit sideways, starting from the middle of the back with a provisional cast on and is worked with a tight gauge on small needles. The stitches are picked up afterward to work the collar and the bottom ribbing with bigger needles. The sleeves begin with a provisional cast on and end with a grafted garter stitch row. The stitches are picked up to work the cuffs and they are assembled to the body.
