Knit Frontier Jacket

Lion Brand® Lion® Suede - Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

12 sts + 19 rows = 4 inch [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with MC.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

M1 (make 1 st) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop.
ssk
(slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog.

NOTES:

Although we chose to place buttonholes on the left front, our instructions reflect the more traditional right front placement.

Pocket Embroidery Pattern

Front and Back Embroidery pattern

Following diagrams, embroider a chain st motif centered on Back yoke, each Front yoke, and each Pocket Flap. With A, make a vertical stitch by bringing needle to RS inside of C chain at lower point, then inserting needle to WS inside of C chain at upper point. Make a horizontal stitch by bringing needle to RS outside of C chain at left point, then inserting needle to WS outside of C chain at right point. This forms a cross in center of motif. Work one chain stitch over center of cross by bringing needle up on lower right side of cross, then inserting needle at same point, leaving a loop on top of cross. Bring needle up on upper left side of cross, through loop, then insert needle down into fabric on other side of loop to secure loop.

Weave in ends.
