Here's a nice, quick little stylish jacket to knit now! It's worked from the top down, which minimizes seaming, as well as giving you the option of different sleeve and body lengths! What's not to love about that!!!

This makes it a wonderfully versatile knitting pattern to use. How many sweater variations will you make with it?

The model shown has the hip short-sleeve length you are seeing everywhere this season. Leaving the garter stitch cuffs unfolded will give you a 3/4 sleeve loop. It is knit to a top of the hip length, but could easily be worked to a more cropped length or to a longer tunic length, if desired.
