Designed by Marianne Isager. English language printed pattern.
The Hokkaido Jacket is a great Fall knit for winter weather. Marianne designed this simple jacket for “Keitodama,” a Japanese knitting magazine. It has become very popular in Japan. The jacket is knitted in Tvinni or Highland Wool with Alpaca 2 using a simple diagonal pattern. It is knitted from the bottom up, with raglan shaping and a simple edge and collar. It can be closed in different ways — we suggest a beautiful brooch or safety pin. This is an easy knit for the experienced and only a slight challenge for the beginner.
