Children - Top Down DK Jacket (Pattern Downloads)
Knitted entirely in garter stitch in Adorn Silky Merino DK, the garment is worked from the neck down, with the collar added at the end.
The raglan shaping of the shoulders takes place with increases on either side of what would normally be the shoulder seams. This means that you eliminate sewing of the shoulder seams, but will still need to sew the sleeve seams.
The length of the sleeves and body can easily be adjusted as required.
