Tiger Lily Jacket

7.00

The Tiger Lily Jacket uses many traditional Nordic knitting techniques and then goes a bit beyond with some especially interesting finishing touches. This design is suitable for advanced knitters who are familiar with both stranded/fair isle knitting and steeks and are interested in learning Mary Ann’s exquisite covered steek finishing method.

Pattern Includes charts and instructions for knitting the jacket shown in ladies’ sizes medium, large or extra large. Jacket is oversized, with the following finished measurements: chest circumference = 41 5/8” (47 5/8”,53 5/8”); body length = 25 5/8” (27 1/4”, 28 5/8”); midneck to cuff = 28 5/8” (31 5/8, 34 5/8)

GAUGE: 24 sts and 28 rows = 4” / 10cm in stranded stockinette stitch.

NEEDLES: The main portion of the jacket is knit on a US #4 / 3.50mm circular needle. A US #3 / 3.25mm is for the ribbing. The US #7 / 4.50mm circular is used for picking up steek stitches. Pattern recommends 3 x main US #4 / 3.50mm needles for working steek covers; 2 x main needles will do, but it’s easier with 3. Pattern also suggests dpns in the main and ribbing sizes; feel free to use your circulars in the “magic loop” method to avoid the dpns. As always, use WHATEVER size main needle gets you the correct gauge. Once you know your gauge needle size, use a needle 1 size smaller for the ribbing, and a needle 3 sizes larger for the steek pick-up.

YARN: The sample was knit in 2006, in Dale Heilo sport weight 100% Norwegian wool yarn, which is no longer available. You can substitute with any other smooth, solid, sport weight wool yarns which knit to the 24 sts and 28 rows per 4” / 10cm gauge. If you’re using machine-sewn steek reinforcements, as described in the pattern, you also consider using superwash wool yarns or even non-wools.

Original yarn used: Dale Heilo 100% Norwegian wool, 50g ball = 100m / 109 yds
