Knit in bulky Hinterland Watershed for the utmost softness and warmth, the Gambier Jacket is a staple for the coastal Pacific climate. Featuring simple colour work in muted tones, the body is worked from the bottom up in one piece. After joining sleeves at underarm, the yoke is shaped with raglan decreases and the button band and collar are picked up and worked separately, creating a cozy shawl collar. Gambier features extended length and set-in pockets for added warmth. The colour work pattern is a nod to traditional Peruvian motifs, perfect for the Alpaca blend.

GAUGE
Using US 11 / 8mm needles, 13 stitches and 19 rows = 4” / 10 cm in colour chart 3.

Note about gauge: in suggested yarn, colour work charts tend to come out tighter than single- colour stockinette after wet-blocking. Pattern has been written to accommodate the slight difference, though knitter should aim to work both at the same gauge.
