This sumptuous, flattering jacket is knitted in one piece to the underarm where the fronts and back are then divided and knitted separately. The peplum is discreetly shaped within the pattern leading to a ribbed waistband. The main cabled pattern continues up each front and the back with the surrounding stitches worked in reverse stocking stitch throughout. The sleeves are knitted separately with cuff detail to match the peplum. They are then gently gathered at the shoulder to allow room for another garment to be worn underneath.
The hood is worked in one piece and is gathered at the back to create a truly fairy tale style hood. An open ended zip is sewn in to bring the design up to date and make it a truly useful piece in your wardrobe.
