Construction Notes: The body of this jacket is knit in Fair Isle-style stranded color work, with the patterns presented in chart form only. The jacket begins with a turned hem, then the body is worked in the round with steeks at center front and at the armholes. Sleeves are also worked in the round. The steeks are reinforced with machine stitching, then cut open. Duplicate stitch embroidery accents the upper back and sleeves. The front bands include a welt that encloses the cut edge of the steek, and a wide zig-zag ribbing, which is echoed on the cuffs. The cut edges of the armhole steeks are covered with facings at the tops of the sleeves.
