Masonry Jacket

Masonry Jacket



I see this sweater as a re-imagining of 1960s jackets, updated for modern crocheters. It features a wide stand-up collar, round-yoke shaping highlighted by a herringbone half-double crochet stitch, 3/4 length sleeves, and large buttons. Yarns with a subtle color variation will highlight the herringbone stitch pattern and seamless construction. This pattern was originally published in Inside Crochet magazine.
