Organic Seasons Jacket

Organic Seasons Jacket in testing! Yay!

I had originally designed this jacket and matching blanket for a submission, which I never heard back from.  I won't say who it was, but I hung onto it for a long time, just-in-case :)

I offered it to Knit Picks and they accepted!  I chose Knit Picks Swish Tonal Worsted and fell in love :) It was from working with it in these projects that I decided to use it for my Union Suit.  It is SO soft!

This Jacket is knit seamlessly, bottom up, sleeves in the round.  Once the sleeves are attached to the body, it is knit seamlessly with raglan decreases.  Hood is worked with increases up the back and grafted at the top.  A year ago, I avoided grafting at all costs; now, I love doing it! 

I bought buttons yesterday that are dark wooden leaves and I will try to get those sewn on today.

The size shown is 2 years, however, Lox runs away screaming if he sees the jacket, let alone me trying to MAKE him put it on.  I feel serious bribes coming up for the photo shoot :/  Scarlett is proudly modelling and she wears a 4.  The jacket is meant to be longer to cover the behind :)

Tentative release date for both blanket & jacket is Early November :)

Happy Knitting!
