From Lion Brand Yarn designer Vladimir Teriokhin, the Modern Varsity Knit Jacket is fantastic for daily wear. It’s a zip-up jacket that features an extra cozy texture that you can use as an outer layer.

In addition, the pattern is ideal for advancing intermediate knitters.

Moreover, its finished bust measures about 49, 53, 57, 61, 65, and 69 inches. That’s 124.5, 134.5, 145, 154.5, 165, 175, and 178 cm if you prefer to use the metric system.

To make this jacket, you will need the Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Yarn, a super bulky Wool-Ease variant. Spun from acrylic and wool, it expertly combines outstanding warmth, softness, and easy care. It’s a great choice for making toasty garments like this jacket.

Furthermore, you will need a US size 9 knitting needles. That’s 5.5 mm if you prefer to use the metric system.

Finally, working the pattern requires you to make the P2og or purl 2 stitches together. It’s an easy decrease technique that is the reverse side equivalent to the K2tog.

If you like to learn how to do the p2tog, you can check out our fully illustrated tutorial for this technique here: Purled Right-Slanting Decrease (P2Tog).
