The Zipper Jacket is worked from the top down. First the back yoke is worked, then the right and left front yoke. Before the body is finished, double-knitted front edges are worked on the fronts of the yoke and the stitches from these are joined with the body. The double-knitted front edges look like stockinette stitch from both the right side and wrong side. The jacket is closed down at the front with a zipper and a facing is worked for the zipper before it is sewn in.
The sleeves are worked in the round from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the armholes. At the end, the afterthought pockets are worked from stitches that are picked up along the fronts of the jacket.
The price of the yarn kit is calculated based on the amount of yarn included, which is the amount we have used to knit the design according to the above measurements. Should you need more yarn, additional yarn can be purchased at regular prices by placing an order and state lot number in the comment box at checkout. All designs have been thoroughly calculated and tested.
