Level of difficulty: intermediate
This stylish fitted jacket, designed by Meg Crowther, comes in 3 adult sizes and is knitted in a basket weave pattern with a ribbed waist band for shape. The double breasted front and epaulettes give it a military look. If you don’t have the patience for the fitted version, just omit the waist band and you will have a stylish loose jacket. Using the yarn double means this coat will be ideal for those cold winter months and cool spring and autumn days.

Measurements (actual garment):36” (94cm), 40” (104cm), 44” (113cm)
