Think of crisp fall days and boyish style for this cosy yet lightweight jacket. The leather fasteners are easy to make, and look superior to commercial findings. This sweater has an unusual construction: the left and right sides are worked side-to-side from the center back to the center front, and then the backs are joined together with a three-needle bind-off. The lofty yarn works in counterpoint to the dense row gauge of the stitch pattern, so that the garment is not heavy
