Knitting kit for Jenny jacket by PetiteKnit in Önling No 2 and Önling No 10
The Jenny Jacket is worked from the bottom up in a knitted smock pattern. The body and sleeves are worked separately and then gathered on the circular needle for the yoke. The yoke is worked with short rows at the top to shape the neckline. The body is worked back and forth, while the sleeves are worked in the round, either on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. At the end, stitches are picked up along the front edges to knit the button bands or plackets. At the end, the neck edge is worked.
The Jenny Jacket is designed to have approx. 12-15 cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 12-15 cm larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-105 (105-115) 115-125 (125-135) cm.
The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust (or your widest upper body part) to determine which size will fit you the best.
For example, if you measure 90 cm around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S.
A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 102 cm which in the given example would give you 12 cm of positive ease. If you are between two sizes, I recommend choosing the smaller size, as the smock pattern will grow with wear.
