The best way to get something done is to begin.
I adapted this pattern to my weight of yarn and size of jacket from a pattern I received from Gloria Johnson in Dayton, Ohio. Now I’m knitting another. The inset photo shows the new colorway. I’m using a silk/wool blend yarn that is a bit finer than DK weight. The knitting starts at one side and is worked to the other side using the linen stitch. This stitch lies flat and drapes nicely using a larger than expected needle size—U.S.#9. This is a great project for times when I want to keep my hands busy but don’t want to concentrate on my work.

There is a PDF version of this pattern at http://www.atimetoknit.com/PDF_files/Cocoon-Jacket.pdf
This pattern gives you the general idea of how it is made but it is a good idea to knit a swatch then figure the number of stitches that will work best for you.

Katherine, Is the pattern for this jacket posted anywhere? It looks like it would be fun to wear! Cheryl
Thanks Katherine for your comments! I really love this jacket design.
Lovely colors in that yarn. You’ll have to give us yarn details and progress photos as it unfolds. I’ll be watching!
