Knit in bulky Hinterland Watershed for the utmost softness and warmth, the Men’s Gambier Jacket is a staple for the coastal Pacific climate.

The body is worked from the bottom up in one piece as a quick and satisfying knit. After joining sleeves at underarm, the yoke is shaped with raglan decreases, and the button band and collar are picked up and worked separately to create a cozy shawl collar. This jacket also features set-in, contrasting pockets for visual interest and added warmth.

GAUGE

Using US 11 / 8mm needles, 11.5 stitches and 15 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.
