I’m just going to pause for a second and think of young Marlon Brando in his white t-shirt and motorcycle jacket. Sigh. Ok, moving on.
The Wild One has a cropped length, set in sleeves and waist shaping. It’s knit in pieces, denser than Lopi usually calls for, and seamed. This gives the jacket more structure and some wind resistance. Because she’s a genius, she’s lined the bits that might touch your skin, like the collar, with Berroco’s Ultra Alpaca – cozy and soft.
Kate knit her jacket out of traditional black, but I’m thinking burnt orange or deep raspberry might be what I want. What color are you thinking of knitting your Wild One?

She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing.
