Synopsis

Show your personal style with Knitted Jackets, a folk-inspired collection of fun-to-knit and easily wearable designs from designer Cheryl Oberle. These appealing patterns make folk traditions modern and range from extremely simple to moderately involved, are "knitter friendly," and are especially flattering to every figure.



Worn to protect, to identify, and to adorn, some type of jacket is currently found in nearly every culture. This collection of eighteen-plus handknitted, modern jacket designs is inspired by textiles and cultures from around the globe. A variety of techniques and clearly written instructions gives knitters an opportunity to showcase and expand their skills. Each section focuses on a particular knitting technique, and each garment is accompanied by a beautiful photo and the history or folk lore that illuminates the culture of origin. Projects include easy step-by-step instructions and color technique illustrations.



Countries represented include Austria, Germany, England, Canada, United States, China, Japan, Peru, Spain, Norway, Faroe Islands, and Ireland with several variations. Techniques include lacemaking, cabling, color work, and more. Knitted Jackets takes the knitter on a world tour to find inspiration for incredibly beautiful creations that can be worn every day.
