Fabulous Fabrics Just for Jackets with Gwen Bortner
A knitted jacket is the perfect item to add to your wardrobe. Wear it to the office over a skirt and shell or toss it on with a t-shirt and jeans for a day of shopping. However, knitting a jacket can be different than knitting a sweater. Learn what makes a good jacket fabric along with methods to achieve the desired result. Try a number of different stitch pattern possibilities and learn how to identify good possibilities early. Finally, begin developing a gauge swatch for your own jacket.

Supplies
1 - 3 colors of yarn in a similar weight (#3-DK weight recommended) for jacket swatch, variety of needle sizes including sizes larger and smaller than would be typically used with the yarn.

Homework
None.
Skills needed
Strong knitting skills, comfortable working pattern stitches.
