Kadigan (n): a thingamajig, a wotsit.

This particular kadigan is a funky, versatile jacket with adventurous construction encouraging fun with colour combinations. Wear it closed, fold the fronts back or let them fall for three different looks! A contrast gore adds flair to the back view.

It’s also a remarkably enjoyable knit, not quite mindless, but not demanding much checking of the pattern. And it’s highly adaptable for a perfect fit, with no maths required (detailed notes are provided).

Photo tutorials are included for the crochet provisional cast-on, German short rows, and Kitchener/grafting in garter stitch.
