Children - Top Down 4 Ply Jacket (Pattern Downloads)
Knitted entirely in garter stitch, the garment is worked from the neck down, with the collar added at the end. Self striping yarn has been used for the yoke, collar and front opening bands.
The raglan shaping of the shoulders takes place with increases on either side of what would normally be called the shoulder seams. This means that you eliminate sewing of the shoulder and side seams, but will still need to sew the cuff to armhole seams. For those wishing to totally eliminate the sewing of seams, the sleeves can be worked in the round with double pointed needles.
The length of the sleeves and body can easily be adjusted to suit by working more or less rows as required.
