Frankie is a dropped-shoulder jacket for baby with little details designed to create a perfect finish.

There are two colour styles: a colour-blocked version with contrasting bands, sleeves and pocket linings or a more subtle colourway with contrasting cuffs and pocket linings. Alternatively, the jacket can be worked throughout in a single colour.

The main fabric is stocking stitch with K2, P2 rib bands.

The jacket features cutaway side pockets with a contrasting pocket lining. The front edges with V-shaped neckline are finished with a rib buttoning band.
