Hack It Jacket

Hack It Jacket

With the Hack it Jacket you can design your very own cardigan by making simple changes to the basic instructions. Different “hacks” described in the instructions help you to create exactly the expression you want in your jacket. The variations range from different yarn compositions to altered constructions on the sleeves and neckline. Only your imagination sets the limits here.


The basic instruction of the Hack It Jacket is a very classic raglan cardigan, which has a slightly wider fit at the body. It is worked top down in Vams by Rauma. First you work the ribbing at the neckline. Then short rows are worked on the front piece, including raglan increases for the sleeves. The sleeves are then worked with decreases, before both the body and sleeves end with ribbed cuffs. Finally, you pick up stitches for the front bands.


Yarn: Vams by Rauma Garn
Amount of yarn: 9 (10) 12 (13) 15 skeins. Keep in mind that the use of different “hacks” might change the total amount of yarn. The quantity given here refers only to the basic instruction.
Sizes: 1 (2) 3 (4) 5. The pictured jacked is worked in size 3. The model has a chest circumference of 96 cm.
Measurements: Chest circumference approx. 109 (115) 123 (129) 137. Sleeve width 34 (38) 41 (45) 48 cm. Inner sleeve length approx. 49 cm (individually adjustable). Total length excl. ribbing at neckline approx. 44 (46) 48 (50) 52 cm (individually adjustable). Keep in mind that changes regarding the measurements may result in a different total amount of yarn.
Recommended needles: Circular needle 4 mm (80 and 30 cm). Circular needle 5 mm (80 and 40 cm). You can skip the short 40 and 30 cm circular needles, when working with dpns or the Magic loop method. The needle size is just a recommendation. Please knit a gauge swatch first!
