Free Pattern Friday – Peony Ridge Jacket

It’s Free Pattern Friday!


Today, the Peony Ridge Jacket in Adore Colors.

Self-striping yarn looks so cute in baby knits!  It’s a great way to add color without complicating the design.  Adore Colors is a great choice for this, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s a soft, machine washable blend of our anti-pilling acrylic and superwash merino.  Lucky baby.  Well, not just baby – this jacket is sized up to 6 years.


Work the cardi from the bottom up in one piece until you get to the yoke. Sleeves are worked flat to the yoke. Then join the sleeves and the body and work upward.  You’ll want three or four buttons, depending on size.  There’s one button hidden under the collar, so you can fasten it closed around the neck in case of really cold weather.

We hope you enjoy this cute little jacket – and that you and yours stay warm!

Happy knitting!

  1. Hi I hope someone can help. I’ve been knitting the peony ridge jacket and am stuck at the yoke part. I don’t understand this row and how I go from 101 stitches to 163 stitches and then do I add the sleeves in here?

    1. Hi Leanne,

      Just before the Yoke section, you’ve been working on the body stitches. On the first row of the yoke, you will work across right front sts, place 4 underarm sts on a holder, work over the sleeve stitches, work over the back sts, place 4 underarm sts on a holder, and then work across left front sts.

      So this first row joins the body and the sleeves. Does that make sense?

  2. Hi Amy,
    Thank you for this. I just want to check … when I knit the sleeves what do I do with the two stitches at the beginning and end that I put on a holder? Do I leave them on the holder for this row?

    1. Hi Leanne,

      If you look ahead to the Finishing section, you’ll eventually be instructed to graft these 4 stitches from the sleeve to the 4 stitches from the body that were also left on stitch holders.
