Forest Green Cabled Jacket

Back with City

I recently made this jacket for my husband.  The pattern called for a simple jacket with ribbed edging and stockinette stitch, but that just didn’t seem like much fun.  I liked the collared, zip-up jacket, so I kept the basic shape of the pattern and added some cable panels and some moss stitch for texture.

On the back, there are three wheat ear cable panels in the middle and honeycomb panels on both sides.  The collar is moss stitch.  The two front panels are honeycomb outlined in wheat ear cables.  The sleeves are all honeycomb, with moss stitch on the underside.

Here’s how this jacket looks in a river with some buffalo.  Not bad, eh?


Hopefully one day I’ll write out the pattern in full!
