Not all knits are stretchy. All-over slip-stitch patterns add stabilility to knitted fabric and give it a woven look and feel. Teva Durham has taken advantage of a "woven" knit-stitch pattern to make a plaid jacket that's as comfortable to wear as any sweater, but will hold its structure long after you've put it on. A large collar, roll-back cuffs, and simple chopstick closure (you can substitute a kilt pin) give the jacket urban sophistication and the warm, spicy colors will brighten any day.
Finished Size: 36 (38 1/2, 41 1/2, 46 1/2, 52)" (91.5 [98, 105.5, 118, 132] cm) bust/chest circumference, closed. Coat shown measures 38 1/2" (98 cm).
