This jacket is my favourite knitting creation so far – and I wear it loads!
SIRDAR Escape Chunky knitting pattern 9214 (jacket, waistcoat, hat 24/26 – 40/42″
- Yarn: Escape Chunky shade 187 (sadly this is out of production, but there are still some available on ebay!) – number of balls is size dependant.
- Needles: 6 visit site.5mm (UK3 – USA 10.5) & 5.5mm (UK5 – USA9)
- A button
Sizing noted above is small – I am a (UK) size 20, took the largest size in the pattern, and have a Jacket which has already lasted years!
It was a wonderful Knitting Project for Christmas (the picture shows the jacket after 1 year’s wear!). The wool is easy to knit with and so comfortable and soft to wear (I just LOVE the wool AND the pattern!).
