The Esther Jacket is worked from the top down in a textured pattern. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth and shaped with increases. Then, the shoulders are worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the top of the back yoke. The body is worked back and forth. The sleeves are worked in the round on a circular needle from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the armhole openings. At the end, front plackets are worked as well as a ribbed neck edge. 

Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size will give you the correct gauge in the textured pattern. The swatch can be worked using a chart in the pattern.

Size guide

The Esther Jacket is designed to have approx. 24 cm [9½ inches] of positive ease in the smaller sizes and then gradually less positive ease in the larger sizes. The sizes XXS (XS) S (M) L (XL) 2XL (3XL) 4XL (5XL) are designed to fit a bust circumference of 75-80 (80-85) 85-90 (90-95) 95-100 (100-110) 110-120 (120-130) 130-140 (140-150) cm [29½-31½ (31½-33½) 33½-35½ (35½-37½) 37½-39½ (39½-43¼) 43¼-47¼ (47¼-51¼) 51¼-55 (55-56) inches]. The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S jacket has a bust circumference of 114 cm [45 inches] which in the given example would give you 24 cm [9½ inches] of positive ease.
