A plan for a jacket

I saw a jacket a while ago that was a simple rectangle knitted sideways in rib with 3/4 length sleeves. I want one. I can’t find a pattern.  I keep thinking about this design because it looked so stylish.

It looks like I might have to make it up. It will be hip length 4×2 rib, the fronts will cross slightly and just hang open or I will use a shawl pin to clip them and let it fall open at the top. Knitted in one piece or maybe 2 with a seam down the centre back where the 2 pieces are cast off.  Sleeves will be tapered so that they are not too wide on the forearm.

  1. Was it anything like the Malabrigo “Carmelo” pattern? It sounds similar in construction, if you wanted a jumping-off point. (It’s in my Rav projects if you can’t find it)
