Vin­tage-style jacket

THIS V NECK jacket has an in­ter­est­ing fab­ric, which fea­tures a checker­board stitch and pan­els of di­a­mond ca­bles high­lighted with bob­bles. It’s knit­ted in a cot­ton-mix tweedy yarn, which in­cludes a touch of metal­lic fi­bre to give a sub­tle sparkle to the fab­ric. For more sum­mery de­signs us­ing this yarn, take a look at Bergère de France’s pat­tern book­let Ber­lingo.

PAT­TERN NOTES

NO CUT BUTTONHOLE Us­ing a sew­ing nee­dle, pick up the hor­i­zon­tal strand of the stitch where you want to place the buttonhole, pull it up and at­tach it two rows higher with a few lit­tle stitches on the wrong side of the work. Re­peat with the hor­i­zon­tal strand be­low the first strand, and at­tach it in the same way two rows down.
