Antoine

Andrea Sanchez

It's always hard to know which pattern from a new collection to begin the sharing with. Especially in our new Spring 2016 Collection, each piece is so different from the rest. So I'm taking the easy way out and going in alphabetical order. That means starting with Antoine by Aurelie Colas

I've been getting a lot of questions about this piece: is it double knit, felted, what?! Here's the scoop. This amazing jacket is knit in two separate pieces then stitched together. Aurelie has included directions to a body that has pockets, and one that has no pockets. So really, if you don't feel like lining pockets you can do two pocketless versions, or just the body with no pockets and no inner jacket. The lining is stitched in very simply with fabric so as not to make the jacket any bulkier. What I'm really hinting at is don't let this scare you! There are so many different options in making this jacket that any knitter with some garment experience can make this. 

Even better, Aurelie has provided a ton of support in photos and technique instruction on her blog!

This jacket was knit in Jamieson's Shetland Shetland Spindrift which is a fingering weight wool. Very sturdy, very wooly. The two layers make it reversible or a boy or girls (depending on where the buttons are placed). The sizes give ample room to layer a sweater underneath. 

I really REALLY hope someone knits this jacket because not only do I think it is darling, but I'd love to see some other color versions. If that someone is you, please share it on Instagram using #knittinlittle and link it up on Ravelry

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.
