Fran Longline Knitted Jacket Cardigan


The Fran knitted jacket is a simple flowing, uncomplicated design (no sewing) all in one piece knit

As a female with curves, I can find button up cardigans a tad unflattering, but a longline open neck front “jacket” style cardigan can be quite slimming – so this was the design plan.

Fran’s knitted jacket cardi is so warm and snuggly – let it flow or wrap around you comfortingly, it’s chic and effortless.

This cardigan is knit from the bottom up, in one piece, with very little seaming – made in two sizes; Small to Medium, Medium to Large

This pattern is suitable for knitters developing up from their first few patterns, and looking to a achieve a full adult garment 

This pattern was developed as an original pattern by Michelle Stewart

Fran Longline Knitted Jacket Style Cardigan Knit Kit

I liked the idea this would be a straight forward minimal sewing, minimal shaping knit – flowing and drapey, but with a touch of elegance and unique design at the neckline. I’m adding a little pin to close mine at the top and give my shape a sliming line.

As it turns out, this pieces looks lovely on Frances – the model and my good friend – as it has a nice casual ease, gentle flow and is wonderfully suitable for a busy mother of gorgeous toddler. So it was named for her, and lets face it – she rocked it!

This knit, while simple in design, will need developing set of skills for knit and purl, 3 needle bind off for the shoulders, picking up stitches, simple shaping like knitting and purling together, and making stitches too.

Featured colour is Midnight
