I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.

“O Frabjous day! Calooh! Callay!”

Lewis Carroll

Through the Looking Glass

Jabberwocky features waving ribs that create striking mirror images at the front, back and sides. It is seamless, reversible and is painlessly shaped with the omission of increases (or exclusion of decreases) in the stitch pattern.

Jabberwocky can be made as either a cardigan or vest and is gender adaptable. For men simply omit waist shaping (men’s sizes to 2X). For women, add waist shaping and you create a garment that is flattering to all feminine curves.

Jabberwocky comes in a large range of women’s sizes (XXS to 5X) and is suitable for a wide range of personal styles. Larger women particularly appreciate the generous coverage at the shoulders and under arm (no peeking bras thank you very much). Both charts and written directions are provided.

As an added bonus, Jabberwocky is reversible!

Finishing note: the front edge and buttons loops are worked in crochet.
