My design ideas and advice: I designed the Tim Shawl Collared Jacket for men but it is great for every shape. It’s perfect to throw on when the weather changes, I’m thinking of the British summer when it can be warm and cool in one day! This jacket knitted in wool is the solution to regulating your temperature.
This shawl collared jacket is knitted in aran weight yarn in pieces from the bottom up. The seams are straight and simple to join with mattress stitch.an updated version of a shawl collar jacket that I designed in 2010.
