My lovely Mossy Jacket had to be updated as a pattern and as a design so here we are with the Mossy Jacket Pattern Remake.

Can you imagine that all photos with me wearing this Mossy Jacket are made now, 2 years after making it? Well, yes…and all started because one of the makers asked me if I have some photos with someone wearing the Jacket, because in the previous pattern I have only photos with the jacket lying on the floor.

Because I still had the Jacket, I said, Ok let’s make some photo because they might be helpful. After seeing those photos I said that this Jacket deserves an upgrade, because it’s looking so great and there might be makers who will want to try to makes this.

And this is how the idea of “Pattern Remake” series came to life.

Mossy Jacket Pattern Remake



Materials you will need

  • Yarn
    • Category 3, DK weigh Yarn (we will work using 2 strands of yarn at ones)
  • Needle

5.5 mm crochet hook (US I size)

  • You will need a yarn needle for assembling and to hide the ends
  • 6 buttons (I used 2 cm diameter buttons)
  • Scissors

Pattern notes

This Mossy Jacket has a closer fit and is shaped around waist. If you want it easier to make you can work the same width around waist and adjust the waist of the jacket with the buttons placement.

The construction of the jacket is simple. We will work the 5 panels, 1 for back, 2 for front and sleeves and then sew the pieces together. To finish we will add a collar and buttons

The pattern is available in 5 sizes, from Small to 2X large and is written in US terms.

All the measurements are in centimeters unless the pattern specified something else.

Final measurements

The Jacket is designed with a closer fit.

Pattern

To make this pattern easy to understand and to adjust according to your own measurements, the instructions for the back panel are given by sections. Each section will start from row 1. At the end of the panel you will find the total number of rows.

  • M – 70 sts
  • L – 76 sts

*if you want that the Mossy Jacket to be longer you can work more rows on the hips section of the back panel.

After working the first 20 rows we will strat with the waist section.

Back Panel (waist)

We will start decreasing to shape the waist. Start the row with ch 1, instead of ch 2, because we wil start with a dec.

Row 1

1 dec (sc2tog in first 2 sts), then continue with linen stitch to the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn.

Next, repeat round 1, until you get to the waist width or until you have in total for the waist section:

  • S – 12 rows
  • M – 16 rows
  • L – 14 rows
  • XL – 14 rows
  • XXl – 14 rows

To complete the high waist of the back panel we will continue working next few rows without decreasing.

  • S – 89 rows
  • M – 90 rows
  • L – 93 rows
  • XL – 95 rows
  • XXL – 97 rows

Front Panel Left

For the front panels, the pattern is similar with the back. We will shape the front panels as well, so when we put everyting together to have the same shape on back and on front of the jacket.

To have a view on how the front panels have to look, fold the back panel in half. The button line of the front panels will be overlapping and that’s why the front panels will be wider then half of the back panel.

Also we will have pockets, so we will have to pay attention on this detail as well.

Foundation Chain

  • S – 41 sts
  • M – 46 sts
  • L – 48 sts
  • XL – 52 sts
  • XXL – 54 sts

Row 2

Skip first sc, 1 sc in next space, ch 1, skip next sc, 1 sc in next space. Repeat to the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn.

Rows 3 – 17

Repeat row 2.

Next, we will make the pocket opening. So, for the next few rows we will work the front panel in 2 different pieces. To be easier we will call it A and B.

Mossy Jacket Pattern Remake

Row 18 A

Skip the first sc, 1 sc in next space, ch 1, skip next sc, 1 sc in next. Repeat the stitch pattern for 14 sts, then ch 7 and turn.

Row 19 A

Starting with 3rd st, 1 sc, ch 1, skip 1, 1 sc in next. Continue until the end of the exra chain. In the last st you will have 1 sc, then ch 1, skip the next sc, 1 sc in next space. Continue with linen stitch to the end of the row.

Rows 20 A – 21 A

Work linen  stitch in the section A sts only.

Next, we will start decresing to shape the waist of the back panel. The high waist will have the same numbers of rows as for the back panel. Because we have to decrease in only one side, we won’t decrease at the beginning of each row.

Before each row with decrease, the turning ch will be ch 1.

Row 22 A

Start with a dec (same as you did on the back panel), continue with the linen st to the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn.

Row 23 A

Skip the first scm 1 sc in next ch 1 space, ch 1, skip next sc, 1 sc in next spece. Repeat to the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn.

Continue to alternate 1 row without dec and 1 row with 1 dec at the beginning of the row until you will have in total:

  • S – 32 rows
  • M – 36 rows
  • L – 34 rows
  • XL – 34 rows
  • XXL – 34 rows

After we’ve done decreasing for the waist, we are done with the pocket high as well and is time to work the section B of the front panel and then to conect them and continue working the rest.

Row 18 B

Remember that before making the chain extention of the pocket on section A, we worked the linen stitch into the first 14 sts. Now, join the yarn into st, 15 and start the row from there.

Ch 2, skip next sc, 1 sc in next space, ch 1, skip next sc, 1 sc in next space. Repeat to the end of the row.  Ch 2 and turn.

*numbers for sizes Medium, Large, 1X large and 2X Large are written between brackets)

Rows 19 B – 32 B (19 B – 36 B, 19 B – 34 B, 19 B – 34 B, 19 B – 34 B)

Repeat row 18 B.

Now we are done with section B as well and on the next row we will join the 2 sections and start working in one single piece until we will finish the front panel.

Row 33 (37, 35, 35, 35 )

Skip first sc, 1 sc in next space, ch 1, skip next sc, 1 sc in the next space. When you get to the overlaping sts, pass the hook trhough both sides, to join them, then continue with the pattern to the end of the row.

Row 34 (38, 36, 36, 36)

Skip first sc, 1 sc in next space, ch 1, skip next sc, 1 sc in next space. Continue to the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn.

Rows 33, 34 ware the 2 rows that we made on the back panel as well, after decreasing to shape waist.

Next, we will start increasing for the bust width. We will increase only in one side, for the exact same number of rows as we did on the back panel. Because we are increasing only in one side the pattern will be: 1 row with inc, 2 without.

Row 35 (39, 37, 37, 37)

This row will be without inc, so work the linen st to the end of the row.

Row 36 (40, 38, 38, 38)

1 sc in the first st (we are not skipping the first st to make the inc), ch 1, 1 sc in the next space, ch 1, skip the next sc, 1 sc in next. Repeat to the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn.

Row 37 (41, 39, 39, 39 )

Skip the first sc, 1 sc in next space, ch 1, skip the next sc, 1 sc in next space. Continuw to the end of the row.

 

Row 38 (42, 40, 40, 40)

Repeat previous row.

Next, last 3 rows (1 with inc, 2 without) until you have in total:

  • S – 52 rows
  • M – 62 rows
  • L – 57 rows
  • XL – 57 rows
  • XXL – 54 rows

Next we will work the next rows to the armpit without increasing:

  • S – 12 more rows
  • M – 2 more rows
  • L – 7 more rows
  • XL – 7 more rows
  • XXL – 10 more rows

We will have in total from the hem to the armpit:

  • S – 64 rows
  • M – 64 rows
  • L – 64 rows
  • XL – 64 rows
  • XXL – 64 rows

Next, we will decrease at the end of the next row for the armhole

 

Row 65

Start the row as usual and work yhe linen stitch until you have left:

  • S – 4 sts
  • M – 4 sts
  • L – 6 sts
  • XL – 8 sts
  • XXL – 8 sts

Ch 2 and turn

Next, continue with linen stitch until you will have in total:

  • S – 84 rows
  • M – 85 rows
  • L – 88 rows
  • XL – 90 rows
  • XXL – 92 rows

For the last 4 rows to complete the length of the front panel we will work just 11 sts on the armhole edge, on the shoulders area.

For the second front panel you can follow the same pattern as for the left one only that when joining after pocket you will face the wrong side. Because the linen stitch is looking the same on both sides we can do that. Otherwise you will have to repeat the pattern but in mirror.

Also on this side you will have to make the button holes (or you can make them on the left side as well). Make 3 button holes starting with row 30 and then at every 14 rows. Keep 3 sts from the edge and then ch 2 and skip 2.
