Draft Dodger (Simplified)

In the previous version I discovered that the back diamonds needed to be longer and wider than the front, so in this version I added more base stitches to those. The front diamonds are based on 25 stitches and the back diamonds are based on 29. Version one is blogged here.

I also left off the scalloped edge and changed the neckline to a mock turtleneck. And lastly, for the simplified version I used only one yarn throughout.

The neckline is short and stands up nicely keeping away the chill.

The larger back diamonds balance out the shape better.

The Free Pattern is now available here.


  1. Thank you for the pattern! Those of us still up in Illinois will appreciate the extra warmth to get through the winter.

    Your design is lovely, and I'll be happy to make my own version of it.

  2. I love the name!
