Knit on the bias in allover zigzagging stripes, Maurer’s open-front jacket is a study in subtle contrasts. The pattern alternates blue-hued Noro Silk Garden colorway #373 with solid royal Silk Garden Sock Solo #3; worked at a looser than usual gauge, the solid stripes are slightly sheer. While the body is worked in smooth stockinette, the collar incorporates welting into the same stripe sequence. Untrimmed edges offset the spruce fit.
