Nantucket Jacket

I finished the Nantucket jacket from Interweave Interweave knits Winter 2006. Knit with Knitpicks Swish Superwash in Indigo heather. I added two inches to the body length since I am tall, but I think I could have added an inch or so more so that the flare would really fall on the hips. I added three inches to the sleeves to make more of a 3/4 sleeve, I did not like the elbow length shown in the pattern. After it was knit and put together this still did not seem like quite enough length so I made three rows of single crochet on the end of the sleeve before making the scalloped edge.

I loved knitting this sweater. The cable pattern was so easy to remember. I am not good at memorizing patterns and usually find myself constantly consulting the chart. But this one flew along. Now to find the perfect button.


  1. very nice Judy. the added crochet looks like its supposed to be there.

  2. Judy, I don't knit or crochet, but you're the first to tempt me. This is gorgeous!

  3. This would look amazing on me ;-) LOL!

    I love it.
