The September Jacket is worked from the top down in brioche stitch with one strand of Sunday and two strands of Tynn Silk Mohair held together. First the back is worked back and forth, then the right and left shoulder. Then these three sections are joined to form the body, which is worked back and forth in brioche stitch. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up and knitted from the armholes and the sleeves are worked down from there. At the end, rib edges are worked along the front edges and along the neck edge. The pockets are also worked in brioche stitch, and are sewn on at the end. The jacket is closed at the front with large popper buttons.
Knit a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge. The swatch should be washed and blocked as brioche stitch grows with washing and wear.
The September Jacket is designed to have approx. 5-8 cm [2-3 ¼ inches] of positive ease. Sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL are intended for a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ inches]. Measure yourself using a measuring tape to determine which size to knit. Example: If you measure 94 cm [37 inches] around the widest part of your bust (or belly, if this is the widest part of your body), this would mean you should knit a size M.
Please note that brioche stitch often expands with wear – even if you did wash and block your swatch. So expect your September Jacket to grow a few cm [an inch or so] over time compared to the measurements given at the top of the pattern.
