Top-Down Crochet Jacket

Lion Brand« Amazing® - Fishermen's Wool®

GAUGE:

12 dc = 4 in. (10 cm) and 11 rows = 6 in. (15 cm) with larger hook in Stripe pattern.

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:

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop,  yarn over and draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. Jacket is worked in one piece from neck to underarms, then divided and sleeves and body are worked separately to lower edge.
2. Jacket yoke (the upper portion of the Jacket) is worked with increases to create the raglan line of the sleeves.
3. Jacket yoke and body are worked back and forth in rows. Work 2 rows with RS facing, then turn and work 2 rows with WS facing.
4. Sleeves are worked in the rnd, but turned every 2 rnds to match stitches of body.
5. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete the st. Carry color not in use along side of piece or across the back of the piece until next needed.
6. Front bands and lower edging are worked once body and sleeves are complete. Neck trim is worked when front bands and lower edging are complete.



STRIPE PATTERN
With RS facing, work 1 row with A, then, without turning, return to beg of row and work 1 row with B. Turn work and with WS facing, work 1 row with A and 1 row with B.
