Nigrum Crossover PDF english version
Nigrum Crossover is a feminine and short crossover jacket with raglan, a beautiful frontband and a wide ribbed hem, which is supposed to be placed in the waistline. The hem is held together by 3 buttons in each side – the buttons are visible in the right side, invisible in the left side of the jacket. The jacket is knit top down, so you can easily adjust the length at both the body and sleeves while knitting. The jacket is supposed to be worn with approx. 0-10 cm positive ease.

You will need 7 buttons and 10 stitch markers knitting this jacket.
The jacket is knit in Stockinette stitch knitting back and forth on needle size 4 mm (80 cm). the ribbed hems are knit on circular needle size 3 mm (80 cm). I recommend double pointed needles in the beginning of the project, when you knit the neckband (the first part of the frontbands).
19 sts x 27 rows in stockinette stitch back and forth on needle size 4 mm = 10 x 10 cm.
