"Chocolat" is an unstructured blazer-style jacket in double moss stitch with carefully constructed details. Knitted in one piece, the body is knitted bottom up, while the sleeves are knitted top down with deep cuffs for a perfect fit. All the shaping is done in the underarm and side "seam stitches". I think the shape of the jacket, with its V-neck and back flaps is forgiving to a variety of figures. If desired, the lapels can be worn closed with an attractive pin.
I'm in the midst of getting the "Diamanda" mitts pattern onto Ravelry. "Chocolat" will be next in line.
