I wanted to design something special for my little guy to wear... A proper, gentlemanly jacket for Fall appropriately named "Dapper".

Knit in squishy Garter st, Dapper is complete with all of the pleats, buttonbands, and pockets, of a traditional suit coat. The handsome notched collar and buttonbands are worked right into the jacket fronts for reduced finishing work at the end.

his pattern contains lots of little special details that are fun to create, 
and make for such a beautiful finished product.
