RS: K3 *P1, K3* to end of row.
WS: K1, *P1, K3*, P1, K1 to end of row. (Pattern is a multiple of 4 plus 3.)
At 12 1/2”, decrease 8 sts each side. Continue until sweater measures a total of 21”. BO loosely.
Front: With a #13 needle, cast on 32 sts with the Companion doubled. Work as above. At 19 ½”, BO 4 sts, followed by 3 sts twice on every other row at neck edge.. At 21”, BO the remaining 14 sts. Repeat for other side, reversing shaping.
Sleeves: On a #19 needle, cast on 20 sts.with Opulent. Knit every row for 16” BO loosely. Cut remaining Opulent into 5”-6” pieces and tie on thickly. I do every st.
Finishing: Weave together shoulder seams. Sew tops of sleeves to shoulder. Weave together side seams and sleeve seams. I like the clean edges of this jacket; so I did not finish the edges or add buttons.
