Streamlined Sweater Jacket

Lion Brand® Homespun®


13 sts and 12 rows = 4in [10 cm]. 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



Row 1: 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook * ch 1, skip 1 ch, 1 sc in next ch, rep from * across. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2:
* 1 sc in ch-space, ch 1, rep from * across, end 1 sc in t-ch space. Ch 2, turn.

Rep Row 2 for pat.


BACK: Ch 69 (75, 81, 87, 93, 99).
Row 1:
1 sc in 3rd ch from hook, * ch 1, skip 1 ch, 1 sc in next ch, rep from * across. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2:
* 1 sc in ch-1 space, ch 1, rep from * across, end 1 sc in t-ch space. Ch 2, turn. Row 2 for pat until piece measures 28 (30, 30, 31, 31, 32) in. [71 (76, 76, 79, 79, 81) cm.] from beg. Fasten off.

LEFT FRONT: Ch 53 (57, 59, 63, 65, 69). Work pat Rows 1 and 2, then continue to rep Row 2 for pat, dec 1 st at center front on next row, then every 4 rows 18 times more. Work until Left Front measures same as Back to shoulder. Fasten off. Note: Mark 10 sts from center front for neck shaping.

RIGHT FRONT: Work to correspond to Left Front, reversing shaping.

SLEEVES: Ch 33. Work pat Rows 1 and 2, then continue to rep Row 2 for pat even for 4 in. Continue in pat, inc 1 st at each end every other row 15 (16, 17, 18, 19, 20) times, then every 4th row 4 (5, 6, 7, 8, 9) times. Work even in pat until Sleeve measures 20 (21, 21, 22, 22, 23) in. [51 (53, 53, 56, 56, 58) cm] from beg or desired length. Fasten off.

FINISHING: Sew Fronts to Back at shoulders, leaving 10 sts at each center Front free.

Neck edging: With RS facing, join yarn with a sl st in first st of the 10 sts left free on Left Front. Continue in pat on these 10 sts until piece reaches center Back of neck. Fasten off. Work 10 sts left free on Right Front to correspond. Invisibly sew edges of neck edging to Left and Right Fronts respectively, then join at center Back of neck.

Mark for Sleeve placement 11 (11˝, 12, 12˝, 13, 13˝) in. [28 (29, 30, 32, 33, 34) cm] down from shoulder seams. Sew Sleeves between markers. Sew side and Sleeve seams. Turn Sleeve cuff back for desired Sleeve length.

Shape flap: On each front on lower edge, fold center front 6 in. over to RS and pin in place to create an overlap. Join yarn with a sl st at side seam and work 1 rnd sc along entire outer edge of Jacket easing in fullness so that the overlap lays flat.

Streamlined Sweater Jacket Reviewed by Debbie Fischer on 2012-06-26 **
I have been crocheting for 45 years and I would have to agree that this pattern is not written very well. A stitch count at the end of rows would be very helpful and being a little clearer on the neck edging would be nice too. It just seems that they "steamlined" the written pattern a little too much. I have been muddling through it with an occasional naughty word and hopefully will get done with this project soon.
