Tanit’s Jacket is a cropped jacket in a dense and cozy stitch pattern.
It is worked from the top down in one piece beginning with a provisional cast on. The sleeves are worked flat and sewn at the end. The collar is worked by picking up the sts of the provisional cast on.
When the pattern refers to stopping a certain number of stitches before the end of a RS row, each stitch and its accompanying yarn over (double stitches) should be counted as 1 stitch, not 2 stitches.
When working the short rows it’s important to slip sts and pick up wraps as instructed to ensure that the wraps will be hidden.
It is easy to add length to the body or sleeves as there is no shaping in either of these sections. Added length will require additional yarn.
