Inspiration: contemporary knitted jackets

Have you ever tried to knit a jacket instead of a sweater? Knitted jackets can be fun! I've found a few great examples which are both modern looking and versatile. What do these designs have in common?
- the perfect choice of color combinations
- simple lines
- inventive accents


knitted in simple stocking stitch with interesting ribbon details.
idea to remember: contrast color ribbon is pulled through the knitted holes.

parisian chic:

double breasted classic white jacket with black accents.
idea to remember: textured cross-stitch pattern imitating fabric-effect


collarless, straight jacket with Irish cable patterns
idea to remember: crocheted Chanel-like trimming bands along the edges
Patterns from: Bergere de France yarns
