Pattern description from Knit Simple, Fall 2006: “A virtual rectangle with a bit f shaping for the neck transforms into a unique jacket with some creative folding. The sleeve bands are knit and attached at the same time.”

Knit Tip: “Alternate garter-stitch rows of both yarns to achieve the furrowed look.”
