Throwback Thursday: Samsara

Hi folks! 

 

Carly here. Since we started an Instagram account, we have been noticing people posting old (and sometimes very hilarious) photos from their pasts with the hashtag #throwbackthursday. Kate and I thought it would be fun to feature patterns from past issues on the blog on Thursdays. Welcome to our first installment. 

 

This is Samsara. We first met her in out Winter 2010 issue

 

 

beige cropped jacket with cable panels on the lower front and back knit on the bias

 

 

Have you ever knitted something on the bias? Those cabled panels are knitted diagonally, and then stitches are picked up in various directions to make the rest of the jacket. The hem curves gently in the back, way before that was cool.

The simple one-button closure and the easy shape make this a perfect fall jacket.
