Bed Jacket Knitting Pattern

Designed by Barbara Breiter

Bed jackets are practical for those who are ill but they are also wonderful for cold nights reading in bed. This bed jacket has a short body and long armholes to accommodate pajamas and night gowns. This pattern would also work well as a cropped cardigan or bolero. For a tighter fitting garment, some slight alterations need to be made. Knit it in a nice silk yarn and this pattern transforms itself. Add funky buttons and buttonholes or tie a ribbon at the top to close if desired. Size:
