Dapper

Andrea Sanchez

The Fall 2015 Collection has been full of texture with some really fun colorwork thrown in. This final piece is no exception. Dapper by Alana Dakos, is nothing but rich and cozy garter stitch worked up into a handsome gentleman's jacket. 

This jacket has so many wonderful details that I almost don't know where to start! It features 3 little pockets, perfect for carrying treasures. It has a handsome notched collar and side vents on the back. The set-in sleeves show off the surgeon's cuffs and while this jacket looks so tailored (just like dad's suit jacket!) a lot of the detailed work is done at the same time as the knitting. 

This adorable jacket is knit in Cascade 220 Heathers. So many knitters love the hardwearing Cascade 220, which, superwash or not, will make a great yarn for a child's garment. And with a gazillion colors, you should have no trouble pleasing any young gentleman. 

I've had such great time sharing each of these patterns with you and I hope you've found something worth knitting.  But we aren't done yet! Coming next week, some of our designers will be guest blogging here on Knittin' Little sharing their stories about their designing, knitting, and their own littles.
