The Monarch Jacket is a boxy jacket designed for thick stable knits like ponte and scuba. This slightly cropped cardigan-style jacket has wrist-length raglan sleeves and a bomber-inspired collar. Three snaps provide closure at the center front. The Monarch Jacket has several inches of positive ease through the bodice and is fitted through the lower sleeve.

Use a contrast fabric for the sleeves, collar, and cuffs for a sporty look, or sew your Monarch Jacket in one solid color for a chic outer layer that can be worn year-round. This pattern is well-suited for the advanced beginner sewist who has some experience sewing with stable knit fabrics.
