Mave's Jacket is my darling. It cost me both blood ( from needles when I had to knit 4 layers together for pleats), sweat (technically I do not remember, but for sure) and tears (all the times I unraveled, to start over!). The idea came about because I was tired of knitting sweaters and hats - and the name? Maverick from TopGun. 'nough's said.
Mave's Jacket is a dense and thick bomber jacket inspired by the classic pilot jacket. It is knitted top down and begins with a collar casted on using Judy’s Magic Cast On technique. The body is made in stockinette and folded edges characterise all borders of the jacket. The sleeves are made with pleats at the end to form the classic bomber jacket look. Remember to read the entire pattern and make a swatch before starting.
